Examining Social Mobility and Equity in Certificate and Apprenticeship Programs

Grant Year: 2022

Jason Jabbari and Stephen Roll will examine whether intensive training programs in computer coding combined with apprenticeships can increase employment opportunities and earnings for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. They will evaluate the effectiveness of programs run by LaunchCode, one of the largest coding “bootcamp” models in the United States. The project’s findings will appear in a report, a policy brief, and a research paper.
