Jobs for the Future created this "Guide for Community Colleges," stating: Low-income young adults seeking to advance in today's economy can often benefit from alternative education credentials that prepare them for good jobs. However, community colleges don't always make the case to employers that these credentials align with employer demand.
This report sets out to explore the causes of this disconnect and offer community colleges some solutions that would better align their credentials with labor market need and create greater awareness of the value of these programs.
