ProLiteracy and Pearson teamed up in 2017 to develop Workforce Atlas. It was piloted for five months with four organizations. An outside evaluation team from Results for Development (R4D) collected and analyzed data from the pilot. Workforce Atlas uses open-source data from the Occupational Information Network Database (O*NET) and the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The site connects users to literacy programs in their area using the National Literacy Directory. The University of Pennsylvania, National Centers for Families Learning, and Dollar General Literacy Foundation assisted in creating some of the resources available on the website.
