Evaluation of the Growing Home Transitional Jobs Program
Growing Home is a social enterprise that provides transitional jobs and job training to participants by employing them in organic agriculture at their two urban and one rural farm sites. This project assisted Growing Home in setting up a tracking database by collecting contact and other baseline data from past graduates and following recent graduates for three months post-program to determine outcomes. Specifically the evaluation focused on graduate employment rates, the quality of jobs graduates get and possible improvements for the job training and placement portions of the program.
