1 PATHWAYS TO PROSPERITY NETWORK Regional Spotlight and Introduction to Draft Metrics 2014 Fall Institute Harvard Graduate School of Education Amy Loyd, Ed.L.D Executive Director, Pathways to Prosperity Network Jobs for the Future Boston, MA 1

2 WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO Jobs for the Future is a national nonprofit that works with our partners (like you, and the Harvard Graduate School of Education) to design and drive the adoption of education and career pathways leading from college readiness to career advancement for those struggling to succeed in today’s economy. The Pathways to Prosperity Network seeks to increase the number of young people who complete high school, attain a postsecondary credential with value in the labor market, and get launched on a career in a high-demand, high-wage occupation that can also provide the basis to pursue further education and career advancement. –While in high school, pathways provide at least 12 college credits through dual enrollment, and a continuum of real-world work- based learning to get a leg up on college and career

3 THE PATHWAYS TO PROSPERITY NETWORK Eleven states with ~30 regions, rural to urban, serving as starting places for demonstrating success, with a focus on scaling grades 9-14 integrated academic and career pathways statewide. Not a new program or add-on reform, but a strategic alignment and bolstering of existing initiatives to improve education, workforce, and economic outcomes.
