Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education (PACE)

PACE is a ten-year project begun in 2007 and funded by the Administration on Children and Families to study the effectiveness of career pathways programs. Career pathways programs are designed not only to help recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and other low-income individuals secure employment, but literally to set them on pathways to increasing wages and long-term self-sufficiency. 

 

APHSA’s interest and engagement in the project as a subcontractor is routed in our members’ Pathways initiative and supports one of the four Pathways’  goals – gainful employment and independence. The primary contract recipient is Abt Associates. APHSA worked with Abt to identify and secure the study sites and to communicate with our members about the project’s progress. 

 

The September 26 project webinar, Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education (PACE): If Employment is the Goal, Are Career Pathways the Answer?, was hosted by Cynthia Woodside of APHSA and featured presentations by Brendan Kelly, ACF project officer, Karen Gardiner, principal investigator for Abt, and Seanna Ruvkun, project manager for Health Careers for All at the Workforce Development Council of Seattle-King County.
