Improving College/Career Readiness
College and careers now require the same level of skills. Productivity, the foundation of American competitiveness, depends on a skilled workforce at every level. Within this decade, 72% of jobs in Massachusetts will require some college education. But too many of our high school graduates do not have adequate reading and math skills for college or the workplace. Assigned to non-credit remedial courses, 90% leave college without a degree. JFYNetWorks prepares students for college and the skill-intensive workplace by using the Accuplacer, MCAS and other assessment tools to identify skill gaps and provide individualized instruction to close them. We have helped students reduce the need for remedial college courses by 50%.
