Organization:Jobs for the Future
Short Description:Jobs for the Future prepared this toolkit for schools seeking to create, broaden, and deepen their postsecondary partnerships for maximum impact on college-going.

Annotation:Jobs for the Future prepared this toolkit for schools seeking to create, broaden, and deepen their postsecondary partnerships for maximum impact on college-going. It is divided into three parts, beginning with an assessment of different levels of secondary/postsecondary partnerships users might aim for, and ending with tools to help blend high school and college. The toolkit draws upon the lessons of three important efforts to create clear, tightly designed pathways from high school to college on behalf of students traditionally underrepresented in higher education.
