In the Greater Boston area, large concentrations of immigrants and long waitlists for English language instruction are significant barriers to employment for many people. This Pay for Success project will serve nearly 2,500 adult learners from Greater Boston with a combination of vocational training, contextualized English for Speakers of Other Languages instruction, and job search assistance. Effective implementation of these services will produce measurable outcomes for people through post-secondary education enrollment, improved employment prospects, and increased earnings.
