Capital Area Training Foundation Construction Gateway Evaluation
Principal Investigator: Christopher T. King
Sponsors: Capital Area Training Foundation, Jobs for the Future
Research Partner: Capital Area Training Foundation
Project Duration: January 2004 - December 2004

The Capital Area Training Foundation (CATF) and the Ray Marshall Center have entered into a strategic partnership that will:

  • Provide valuable research on regional workforce and educational issues;
  • Offer program analyses and evaluations of CATF programs; and
  • Develop standards for objective research and evaluation of CATF programs.

The Construction Gateway Evaluation component of this partnership seeks to document results of the Gateway Program, identify practices/policies associated with positive results, and provide options for maintaining and expanding the initiative as well as exploring the possibility of replicating the model in other industry sectors. Moreover, the research feeds back into the larger objective of engaging civic interest and capacity in workforce development and career advancement, validating current investments, and influencing the public policy environment to promote more investment through the example of a “grounded” community program. The evaluation will be available Fall 2004.
