Innovative Strategies for Increasing Self-Sufficiency Career Pathways Profile: Year Up

Whitney Engstrom, David Fein, Karen Gardiner


June 17, 2015
This report provides an overview of Year Up, one of nine programs being evaluated for the Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education (PACE) evaluation.  PACE, formerly referred to as The Innovative Strategies for Increasing Self-Sufficiency (ISIS) evaluation, is funded by the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and led by Abt Associates.  PACE is a ten-year random assignment evaluation of promising career pathways interventions aimed at increasing employment and self-sufficiency among low-income, low-skilled adults and youth.  This program profile report describes the career pathway framework used in the PACE evaluation (a framework that provides a common metric for describing and assessing career pathways programs) and then discusses Year Up's program model and how it fits within the career pathways framework.
