Evaluation of Oakland Health Pathways Project

SRI is studying efforts by Oakland Unified School District and partners to encourage underrepresented minority and low-income youth to pursue careers in health care.

Encouraging more low-income minority youth to pursue a health care career pathway has the potential not only to lead to good employment, but also to improve community health. In 2015, the Atlantic Philanthropies awarded a grant to Oakland Unified School District to expand and improve health care career pathways. The project supports collaboration between education and industry and seeks to improve educational and employment outcomes among youth of color. SRI’s evaluation consists of an implementation study and a quasi-experimental outcomes study.
