The Annie E. Casey Foundation recently highlighted Upwardly Global’s new report, Road­blocks to Work­force Inclu­sion for Young Adult Immi­grants in its landmark blog:

“Immi­grants and their chil­dren have a sig­nif­i­cant and increas­ing pres­ence in the Unit­ed States. Today, the group accounts for 26% of the nation’s pop­u­la­tion and is pro­ject­ed to grow to 34% of the total over the next 30 years, accord­ing to the Migra­tion Pol­i­cy Institute.

As the share of immi­grant fam­i­lies grows, so too does the poten­tial to lever­age their skills, expe­ri­ences and strate­gies for a stronger econ­o­my. But they can’t do it alone, reminds Rani­ta Jain, senior asso­ciate with the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s employ­ment, edu­ca­tion and train­ing portfolio.

Many young immi­grants would ben­e­fit from sup­port in nav­i­gat­ing today’s econ­o­my, includ­ing help to access jobs that use their skills and expe­ri­ence,” she says.

A new report, Road­blocks to Work­force Inclu­sion for Young Adult Immi­grants, echoes this observation.

Pro­duced by Upward­ly Glob­al, the pub­li­ca­tion iden­ti­fies unique chal­lenges that young immi­grants often face in the Amer­i­can job mar­ket and what U.S. employ­ers can do to help these work­ers forge ful­fill­ing careers.”
