About Our Areas of Work
We organize our work into three areas to help low-income youth & adults:

Strategies for Improving Outcomes for Disconnected Youth

Jobs for the Future

JFF submitted responses to the U.S. Department of Education’s recent Request for Information (RFI) on strategies to improve outcomes for disconnected youth. For nearly a decade, JFF has researched, developed, and facilitated practices and policies that enable low-income, off-track, and out-of-school youth to succeed in college and careers.

JFF’s response to the Department’s RFI includes:

  • Key elements to providing seamless pathways for disconnected youth into and through college and careers;
  • Examples of strong community partnerships that are leading this work and how they are structured; and

Recommended success metrics and federal policies that can foster the growth of these types of pathways and community partnerships.
