Building Capacities/Making Connections: A Multi-Year Study of Human and Social Capital Demonstration through the HIP Career Pathways Initiative
Temple University's School of Social Work has recently been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Partnering with Temple's Center for Social Policy and Community in a mult-year, Dr. Cheryl Hyde, Principal investigator, will engage a mixed method study of CSPCD's Health Information Professions Career Pathways Initiative for TANF Recipients and Other Low Income Individuals. The research partnership will examine issues pertaining to: (1) participants' increased workforce capacities and access to labor market opportunities, (2) participants' pre-existing and enhanced networks that impact career development success, (3) how participant engagement in the HIP project is helped and hindered by these networks, (4) how these networks may be positively affected by virtue of participation in HIP, and (5) how participants' community contexts facilitate or challenge program performance and network enhancement.
