How Education and Business Can Join Forces to Boost Success for All

Educators and employers often seem to speak different languages, with different goals in mind. But when it comes to preparing people for work, they have the same objective—helping learners gain the skills and opportunities they need in order to succeed in the workplace. This brief highlights strategies for building effective employer-educator partnerships to increase college and career success for underprepared youth and adults. It is part of a series from JFF’s conference Bridging the Gap: Postsecondary Pathways for Underprepared Learners.

JFF has deep experience working with community colleges and other institutions in engaging employers. For additional information on JFF's services, please contact Mary V.L. Wright, Senior Director, or 617.728.4446 x211.
