Job Training Success Project

Supportive services such as child care assistance, access to public benefits, and transportation or housing assistance, can help adults—especially those with caregiving responsibilities—complete job training programs that will ultimately improve their economic standing.

IWPR’s Job Training Success Project seeks to improve knowledge about access to socioeconomic supports among women participating in job training programs, the need for different types of supports, and how these supports are delivered.

This multi-method research project has produced a series of publications based on a review of published literature on the prevalence, delivery mechanisms, and outcomes of supportive services; interviews with experts from relevant government agencies, nonprofit organizations, community colleges, job training programs, and foundations; online surveys of job training program administrators and participants; an analysis of available data on job training programs; and an analysis of promising practices for effectively providing socioeconomic supports.

The project was funded through the Walmart Foundation.
