CBS Sunday Evening news ran a piece about the Tulsa Community Action Program (CAP) on May, 5th. In the interview, George Kaiser, Tulsa oilman billionaire and philanthropist, states that evidence shows that “it works, it pays, and it’s the right thing to do.” The Ray Marshall Center (RMC) has played a key role in the evaluation of CAP and specifically the CareerAdvance project, which helps parents of pre-k kids receive education and accreditation that lead to higher paying jobs. This two-generation approach is highlighted in a second segment to the CBS piece.

The CareerAdvance project has now been expanded to 2015 with support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families. RMC and partners at Northwestern and Columbia University have been engaged to provide ongoing data collection, implementation and outcomes analysis of project participants.
