CAMPAIGN: MetLife Foundation Annual Report 2015

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

Community colleges have a proud tradition of educating working adults, parents, low-income immigrants, older, or other non-traditional student populations. Many of their students are highly motivated but financially- and time-stressed—one flat tire away from having to drop out. So community colleges are experimenting with models that can increase students’ financial stability and in turn increase the likelihood of academic success. With support from MetLife Foundation and other like-minded funders, the Working Student Success Network (administered by Achieving the Dream), which includes 19 colleges and state coordinating agencies in Arkansas, California, Virginia, and Washington, is helping colleges implement a promising model of integrated services. The model incorporates job training, income and work supports, and financial coaching and products. MetLife Foundation’s support focuses on helping develop, test, and scale the financial-services and coaching components of the model.
