This report examines changes in CareerAdvance®, particularly focusing on the program transition from HPOG I to HPOG II with changing partnerships and a broader population of eligible participants. This transition report draws from previous CareerAdvance® reports, information on the HPOG II program, its participants and their families, and interviews with CAP, Tulsa Tech, and Tulsa Community WorkAdvance staff. First, this report briefly describes the organizations partnering to implement HPOG II version of CareerAdvance®. It then examines changes made to the program components and compares similarities and differences between the HPOG I and HPOG II programs, including eligibility requirements, the recruitment, assessment and selection process, support services, and other program elements. Also, it describes the first HPOG II cohorts enrolled in training from May-August 2016, including their assessment scores and detailed demographic information on participants and their families.
