Our Performance

 

Our Results Reinforce Our Misssion

Older workers were out of work an average of 12 months in 2017, often due to shame, inexperience with social media tools and inadequate networking. Recent college graduates have limited work histories and inadequate professional networks. Department of Labor reports that 44% of employed college graduates under age 25 are not working in jobs that require a college degree; 17% are underemployed (part-time employment) and their unemployment rate is 8.5%, according to the Department of Labor.

    Impact

CTC is committed to evaluating the impact of its programming on the people we serve. CTC measures impact in the following ways: numbers of clients participating in programs and coaching; clients’ qualitative evaluations of programs and coaching; and numbers of clients securing employment. We believe that the strong attendance in programs and coaching sessions is an indicator of the quality and effectiveness of our services from the clients’ perspective. In each of the last three years, 80% of clients alumni report being employed full-time, part-time/contracting, or self-employed, according to CTC's alumni survey, which has had an average response rate of 35%.
