About us


FHI 360’s National Institute of Work and Learning (NIWL) focuses on two key drivers of individual well-being – education and employment – to improve lives. The beneficiaries of our programs are underserved and marginalized populations, those impacted by poverty, displacement from school or employment, involvement with the justice system, and systemic and institutional inequities. Working with foundations, government agencies, school districts, institutions of higher education, businesses, community-based organizations, and the workforce system, NIWL fosters collaboration among and across sectors through: college & career readiness; workforce development;  and research and evaluation.
