State of the Evidence: Economic Opportunity Brief

Posted by Corporation for National and Community Service on May 7, 2019

Through AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and other programs, CNCS makes investments in vulnerable and at-risk individuals, families, and communities across the country, working with local partners to solve their most pressing challenges and improve the economic well-being of those served. The evidence-based programs employ a variety of models including sectoral or industry-based skills training, soft skills training, establishing relationships with employers, and other employment and income supports for participants. Other supports can include job placement, post-employment counseling, career advancement coaching, financial literacy training, remediation, and assistance.
