Jobs to Careers helps frontline health care workers access the skills and credentials they need to advance their careers through work-based learning—at little to no cost to the workers. This $15.8 million initiative is sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, in collaboration with The Hitachi Foundation and the U.S. Department of Labor. The initiative is managed by Jobs for the Future, a national nonprofit seeking to strengthen America’s workforce through postsecondary education.
Launched in 2005, Jobs to Careers awarded three-year grants to 17 local partnerships among health care providers, education institutions, and other community organizations to:
- Create lasting improvements in the way institutions train, advance, and reward their frontline workers; and
- Test new models of education and training that incorporate work-based learning.
