Career Pathways Leading Improved Services
This blog post from the Administration for Children and Families provides a discussion of Career Pathways, which are a promising solution to help Americans acquire marketable and in-demand skills through integrated programs and services for students and job seekers transitioning from education to employment. In April 2012, the U.S. Departments of Labor, Education, and Health and Human Services formed a federal partnership and issued a joint letter of commitment. The partnership helps promote the use of career pathways to assist youth and adults in acquiring valuable skills and credentials through better alignment with employers, educational institutions, training and employment providers, and human and social service agencies. Building on that work, ACF has expanded support to multiple agencies to foster better coordination of programs and services.
