In 2009, five community colleges received $40,000 grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to scale up their Breaking Through programs for post-secondary, low-income, unprepared adults. The case studies in this report reflect on these programs and illustrate how it promotes scale and impact along a number of fronts, using data to stimulate institutional change and ensure that students progress along their pathways toward credentials or degrees. This report was prepared for practitioners, policymakers, foundation staff members, and others interested in strategies to advance low-skilled adults to increasingly higher levels of learning and was published by Jobs For the Future (JFF).
