Apr 1, 2010

This Guide to Transitional Jobs Program Design is an introduction to the essential components of the Transitional Jobs strategy. It includes an overview of the target populations for and goals of the strategy, descriptions of each program element, and best practices for implementing those elements based on research evidence and the experiences of practitioners in the field. This guide can be used as a planning resource by organizations that are interested in starting a new TJ program, or by existing employment programs seeking to fully adopt the TJ model according to evidence-based principles. This guide can also serve as a concise but comprehensive introduction of the TJ strategy for funders, policymakers, employers, and others.
