Evaluation of Battle Creek CAREERS

Project Dates

12/20/2010 - 02/28/2011


Battle Creek CAREERS is an employer resource network (ERN) that operated between 2008 and 2010. This network created a consortium of businesses that provided job retention services, work supports, and training opportunities for entry-level employees, many of whom were receiving public assistance. Upjohn Institute staff members prepared an assessment of this program's accomplishments during that time period. The report presented conclusions about the life cycle experience of the Battle Creek CAREERS program including its initiation, implementation, operation, and wind-down.
