All of our services are led by a senior team from JFF. We provide a unique combination of on-the-ground program creation, recognized state and federal policy advocacy, and extensive partner networks. We offer specific expertise in student engagement, dropout recovery, early college, career pathways, industry-postsecondary partnerships, employer engagement, professional development, peer learning, research, data analysis, knowledge dissemination, and financing strategies.
