HPOG Connects At-Risk Youth to Promising Occupations

ACF's Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) released an issue brief  that examines promising occupations for at-risk youth that offer reasonable incomes and could put them on a path to becoming independent adults.  Key features are used to identify promising occupations, and based on that, the brief highlights health care and construction. The brief also discusses a number of work-based learning and career pathway programs, including the Administration for Children and Families' Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) program.
