WDI Makes National Report

October 29, 2009

WDI has been featured in a national publication

The Workforce Strategy Center (WSC) out of New York City has published a report “Employers, Low-Income Young Adults, and Postsecondary Credentials: A practical Typology for Business, Education, and Community Leaders.” The report was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and features WDI’s Pre-Employment Academies.

WSC did research into more than 100 programs and led them to highlight 14 successful programs across the country. The Pre-Employment Academies were selected based on criteria that included programs that “demonstrated the greatest degree of success in advancing the population into postsecondary education and careers; having substantial employer involvement; and being portable, scalable, and replicable.”
