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

Work-Based Learning in Action

Jobs for the Future

Work-Based Learning in Action is a series of case studies highlighting effective models of work-based learning. JFF has identified seven principles that support low-skilled youth and adults seeking to enter and advance in careers. Together, these principles encourage the design of work-based learning models that increase access to work-based learning, provide participants with key training and work experience, and help employers meet their needs for a skilled workforce. Each of the case studies highlights a program that is an innovative example of one or more of the principles at work. The series begins with an exploration of new IMT Apprenticeship (by Geri Scott) and work-based course (by Deborah Kobes) models, and will be expanded over the course of this year.
