Career Learning for Adult Self-Sufficiency (CLASS)

Dollars and Sense: Using Federal Resources to Fund Career Pathways and Bridges

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On November 30, 2010 (EST)

The nation's fragmented education and training systems aren't producing enough skilled workers or adequately serving lower-income and lower-skilled adults and youth. To combat this challenge and ease the transition into postsecondary education, many states are adopting a career pathways approach to providing education and training to low-skilled adults and out-of-school youth.

Since career pathways initiatives intentionally bring together programming and services from a variety of state systems, states must often "braid" together federal funding sources to develop and sustain these efforts. To help states navigate the federal funding landscape, CLASP's Center for Postsecondary and Economic Success has released a new revised edition of Funding Career Pathways and Career Pathway Bridges: A Federal Policy Toolkit for States.

During this webinar, you'll learn how the toolkit can help your interagency state team "braid" together federal funds to create a customized career pathways funding strategy. You'll also hear from program directors, as they talk about their state's funding strategy and how they're using career pathways to help low-skilled adults and youth attain postsecondary credentials and achieve economic mobility.
