Walmart Brighter Futures 2.0

The Walmart Brighter Futures Project is a cooperative effort between the Walmart Foundation and a select group of the nation’s community colleges led by the League for Innovation in the Community College.

The goals of the Walmart Brighter Futures 2.0 Project are to (1) to help low-income individuals acquire 21st century employment skills to obtain middle-skill jobs; and (2) to develop a model that provides project participants with the confidence that they have acquired the skills needed by employers and that empowers them to document those skills and communicate them effectively to employers.

Program participants will benefit from the comprehensive services that will be provided. A strong intake process will position participants to be successful. A vast array of career resources will assist participants while they are enrolled in the program. The training programs will lead to middle-skill jobs and will put participants on the path to economic self-sufficiency. The structure and services of the programs at the selected colleges will support participants along the entire continuum, from program intake to completion and employment. Participants will exit the program better prepared for success in the labor market.

Twelve community colleges have been selected to work with their local and regional workforce development communities to offer a variety of services and training to low-income individuals who are seeking the skills to move into middle-skill jobs. These colleges will serve as models for other institutions seeking to build, expand, or enhance programs to train individuals for middle-skill jobs.
