Crossing the Divide: An Emerging Typology of Postsecondary Bridging for Opportunity Youth
Almeida, Cheryl; Allen, Lili
Jobs For the Future
Through Job For the Future's (JFF's) work with communities around the country on the Back on Track model, postsecondary bridging strategies have emerged as a particularly critical and especially replicable component of programming for vulnerable youth. This issue brief offers a typology of evidence-informed bridge programming, drawing on frontrunner programs that have designed their strategies specifically for this population and that have attained early indicators of success. Hopefully, this typology will inform the design and support the scale of bridging programs that provide a critical leg up for vulnerable segments of the opportunity youth population to earn the postsecondary credentials that are so essential to thriving in today's economy. Contains one endnote.
