Atlanta CareerRise convened a group of nonprofit, community-based workforce development organizations in metro Atlanta to create a data alliance. This alliance is focused on advocating for resources for programs that provide employment and training opportunities for low-income individuals, improving the use of and collection of data practices, and tracking their collaborative impact.
One of the initial objectives of this alliance was to complete an examination of the effectiveness of pre-employment job training programs and the success rate achieved through job training and placement services. This report, Job Training Programs That Work: Economic Impact of Job Training Programs in Metro Atlanta, was developed using the framework of the 2016 Job Training Alliance Impact Study with the permission of the Job Training Alliance, Boston, Massachusetts.
Atlanta CareerRise supported the development of this study while retaining North Highland to complete the data analysis and Endurance Project Management for project management services.
