The purpose of this final grant is to provide support that will allow the Economic Mobility Corporation to complete a random assignment evaluation of Project QUEST. The report will examine whether participating in Project QUEST improved participants' employment and earnings over control group members at two and four years after random assignment, and will concentrate on the implications for sector-focused training in partnership with community colleges.
This general purpose grant will support a workforce intermediary aimed at job retention and wage advancement for the disadvantaged and working poor. The mission of the Economic Mobility Corporation is to design, develop, and evaluate promising upward mobility strategies for low-income Americans. In addition, the organization serves an important role in studying programs and projects vital to the Foundation's workforce development strategies.
