  • Improve opportunities for job seekers, students, and workers, especially those who face the greatest difficulties in the labor market
  • Meet the needs of employers and society for a highly skilled, well-educated, competitive, and productive workforce
  • Deliver effective and efficient solutions that can be adopted by federal, state, or local/regional governments as well as by educational institutions, businesses, and nonprofit organizations.
