Youth Career Connect Grants ranging from $2-$7 Million
The National FFA Organization is excited to share a wonderful opportunity for local schools to secure funding in 2014 to aid in the redesign of the high school experience. The U.S. Department of Labor will use up to $100 million in revenues to fund up to 40 grants through the Youth CareerConnect program. The program is designed to provide high school students with education and training that combines rigorous academic and technical curricula focused on specific occupations and industries that are in demand. This program aligns with the agricultural education model of combining classroom and laboratory instruction, supervised agricultural experience programs and FFA student leadership development programs.
Youth CareerConnect is designed to strengthen college and career readiness by redesigning the high school experience to focus on providing students with challenging, relevant learning opportunities while enabling schools to develop new partnerships with colleges and employers to support instruction and develop skills students need to enter the workforce. The program will provide high school students with education and training that combines rigorous academic and technical curricula to increase students’ employability and success in post-secondary education.
The ultimate goals for the program are to:
- Ensure that participants gain academic and occupational skills by completing the program and graduating from high school
- Move into a positive placement following high school that include subsidized employment, post-secondary education, long-term occupational skills training or a registered apprenticeship
- Obtain an industry-recognized credential in an industry or occupation for those industries where credential attainment is feasible by program completion, in addition to a high school diploma
- Earn post-secondary credit toward a degree or credit-bearing certificate issued by an institution of higher education
The grants will range from $2-7 million total and can be used to fund programs in a single site or to fund multisite programs or districts. Applications must be submitted by 4 p.m. EST Jan. 27. To apply, follow this link:
