Funding Opportunity: Workforce Pathways for Youth
The U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration is soliciting applications for the agency’s Workforce Pathways for Youth grant program. This grant program, operated by national out-of-school time (OST) organizations, will expand workforce development activities in OST organizations across the country that serve youth living in rural areas during non-school hours. The goals of the grant program are to:
1) expand age-appropriate workforce readiness programming through national OST organizations and their state or locally-operated affiliate organizations and ultimately scale up these efforts;
2) promote increased alignment between OST organizations, workforce development programs, and school systems; and
3) coordinate across workforce development, schools, and OST in order to provide work-based learning experiences, occupational skills training, and unsubsidized employment placements to increase opportunities for youth, particularly those at risk of not completing their high school education, to gain the skills needed to be successful in post-secondary education and employment.
Closing date for application submissions is May 19, 2023.
