YouthForce NOLA Career Readiness Initiative
The YouthForce NOLA Steering Committee seeks proposals from schools interested in exploring, piloting and planning, or implementing high-quality career and technical education school models. Grants will help build the capacity of schools to offer the necessary coursework and experiences so students may develop the knowledge and skills to pursue high-wage, high-demand career pathways.
YouthForce NOLA will support New Orleans open-enrollment, public high schools looking to refine and expand their school models around CTE. Schools will be eligible for the following grants:
- Exploration: up to $10,000, plus technical assistance
- Pilot + Plan: up to $40,000, plus technical assistance
- Implementation: up to $300,000 over three years, plus technical assistance
