This week we’re highlighting our top (according to impact) 5 national workforce development nonprofits. Public Private Ventures, nonprofit #5, was heralded by our experts for their research, evaluation, training, and policy advocacy within the workforce development field. Their research has compelled other organizations to be more efficient and more impactful in their practices and programming.
To learn more about this great organization, this is their founding story:
In 1978, P/PV was created by the Ford Foundation and the US Department of Labor to bring together the government, business, and nonprofit sectors to address the needs of disadvantaged young people. The organization’s initial work focused on evaluating and creating strategies to connect these youth to education and jobs. Its work now focuses on a wide range of social issues, including community health, youth development, faith-based initiatives, sectoral employment, mentoring, after-school programs, youth violence, and prisoner reentry.
