Per Scholas Deputy Chief Training Officer Noah Mitchell Join GrantMakers for Education’s Postsecondary Spotlight on Workforce Training Pathways Panel Discussion

Noah Mitchell, Per Scholas’ Deputy Chief Training Officer, participated in GrantMakers for Education’s June 18th webinar: Postsecondary Spotlight on Workforce Training Pathways. Fellow attendees included Rebecca Taber Staehelin, Co-Founder & Co-CEO of Merit America, Dr. Garrett Warfield, Chief Research Officer of Year Up, and Frieda Molina, Director of Economic Mobility, Housing, and Communities at MDRC.

The panel of experts discussed the continued growth and impact of short-term sectoral training programs, such as Per Scholas, and what this growth means for ‘traditional’ higher education. They addressed the ability of such alternative education programs to offer meaningful economic mobility opportunities, especially for low-income individuals of color and their families, and the implications of the rise of such programs on postsecondary education leaders and funders.
