Evidence in Action: Expanding Access to Opportunity Through Work-Based Education Programs

Thanks to the persistence of social entrepreneurs across the country, every day we see strategies that are working and delivering results in a rapidly changing world. This Evidence in Action blog series highlights the voices of the more than 70 social innovation organizations that make up the America Forward Coalition, the results-driven solutions our community has to our country’s most pressing social problems, and the evidence-based federal programs that are critical to scaling the impact of this work. 

Today, Year Up shares its article, Beyond ‘The Apprentice’: Why the U.S. needs a thriving apprenticeship system, about the importance of apprenticeships and work-based education programs to effectively provide opportunities to Americans looking to gain stable employment. This post originally appeared in The Washington Post on April 9.
