City of New Haven RFP - Youth Career Pathways - Strategic Planning & Project Management
Apply by Jan. 31 @11:00AM (EST)
The City of New Haven is committed to leveraging ARPA Phase 3 funds to enhance high-school age students’ and young adults’ workforce and entrepreneurial readiness, all leading to sustainable and well-paying careers. The purpose of this project is to strengthen career pathways available to New Haven’s high school students and young adults in key skill-based sectors to ultimately help reduce the city’s racial wealth gap, promote economic power, and facilitate school-to-workforce alignment.
To build capacity to develop new and transformative career pathways work, and to invest in long-term infrastructure for career pathways, the City is also focusing on the development of a “career-connected learning center” that would provide extended day learning opportunities for New Haven public school students in key sector career pathways, while having the flexibility to address young adults’ upskilling and sector- based training needs during the mornings and evenings. The driving principles for the development of this physical space are ensuring equity in access to the services provided and creating an agile space that can be adaptive to changing economic needs. The vision for this space, and the logistics of design and implementation, will evolve in the coming year as the City engages in this strategic planning process and becomes further informed by ongoing research.
As part of this work, the City seeks a strategic planning and project management provider to assist in (1) the development of a strategic implementation plan, as well as (2) the project management of this and other youth-related career pathway implementation plans.
