About SkillWorks › Evaluation and Impact

SkillWorks’s impact on the economic competitiveness of, and on the lives of low to moderate income job seekers in, the City of Boston cannot be denied. In Phase I (2003-2008) over 3,000 workers received skills training, with over 500 workers placed in jobs. More than 250 workers received promotions. SkillWorks also provided the model for similar programs in other cities, including Baltimore, New York City, and San Francisco as well as the National Fund for Workforce Solutions.

Abt Associates, in partnership with Mt. Auburn Associates, conducted SkillWorks’ Phase I outcomes evaluation. All evaluation reports are available for download. Click here for Phase I>>

In Phase II (2009-2013), SkillWorks again worked with Mt. Auburn Associates to conduct a thorough third-party evaluation which includes an examination of all three major components: workforce partnerships, capacity building and public policy. As with Phase I, all Phase II evaluation reports are available for download. Click here for Phase II>>

In Phase III (2014-2018), SkillWorks will continue to work with Mt. Auburn Associates for our third party evaluation, which will cover our three major components, as well as our four areas of focus: Drive Demand, Build Capacity, Increase Employability, and Target Impact. The Phase III evaluation report will be available for download upon completion. Stay tuned!>>
