Building College and Career Pathways for the 21st Century and Beyond
Today, young people need both cross-cutting skills and specialized knowledge to thrive in our rapidly changing economy. Business and industry leaders require fresh talent to innovate and grow.
Launched in 2012, the Pathways to Prosperity Network—a collaboration of JFF, the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and states and regions—is leading a national movement to reimagine how we prepare youth for the future of work.
The Pathways to Prosperity Network develops, implements, and scales college and career pathways to expand economic opportunity for all young people and meet regional talent needs. This forward-looking approach depends on strong cross-sector partnerships. JFF’s Pathways to Prosperity Network mobilizes K–12 and postsecondary education leaders, policymakers, and employers, bringing together diverse stakeholders to build a future that works.

The American system for preparing young people to lead productive and prosperous lives as adults is clearly badly broken. Failure to aggressively overcome this challenge will surely erode the fabric of our society.
