Findings from the Instituto del Progreso Latino, Carreras en Salud Program Implementation and Early Impact Report

This brief summarizes the implementation and early impacts of the Carreras en Salud (Careers in Health) program, operated by Instituto del Progreso Latino, in Chicago, Illinois. The Carreras en Salud program aims to help low-income, low-skilled adults access and complete occupational training that can lead to increased employment and higher earnings. A distinctive feature of this program is a full healthcare career pathway, starting at Career English as a Second Language and continuing through Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). It is among nine career pathways programs being evaluated in the Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education (PACE) study sponsored by the Administration for Children and Families.
