This grant will provide support to YouthBuild USA to continue to align education and sector-based strategies to provide students in its network access to advanced opportunities in high-demand occupations. Through this project, the grantee has worked with 11 affiliate programs in Los Angeles and New York in developing: focused articulation agreements with six community colleges, certification training pathways, and placement and apprenticeship opportunities for students in the construction and healthcare industries. Over the past year, 781 students enrolled in this focused career development effort with 584 completing, 385 earning industry certifications, and 468 moving into entry-level employment and/or further postsecondary opportunities. Recommended support will enable the grantee to deepen and expand its education and sector-based activities to 25 affiliate programs across five regions.
This grant will enable the Youth Connection Charter School to continue to develop and model a blended secondary, postsecondary, and career training initiative titled the Career Pathways Program. The Career Pathways Program provides dropouts and off-track students access to an accelerated and structured system of career-track opportunities as the context for high school learning and postsecondary education. Currently, there are eight schools piloting the Career Pathways Program. Over the last year, 429 students earned their high school diploma, 110 students earned college credit via dual enrollment opportunities, and 46 earned industry/occupational certifications as a result of this effort. Recommended support will enable the Youth Connection Charter School to broaden its programmatic efforts to facilitate activities that enhance the model's ability to better prepare students for postsecondary options and success.
The Mott Foundation’s Pathways Out of Poverty program supports initiatives around the United States that seek to improve community education, especially for traditionally underserved children and youth.
