CA Employment Development Department

Opportunity Number:

Portal ID: 51666


The OYA Career Pathway Program for PY 23-24 grants will be to design and implement projects that focus on creating pathways to success that test and demonstrate program strategies to improve employment outcomes and reduce persistent economic inequities for OYA 18-28 years of age.

The OYA Career Pathway Program should position OYA to obtain access to good-quality jobs, including jobs that pay family-sustaining wages, offer benefits, have predictable hours, opportunities for career advancement, and worker voice. Projects will also provide investments for wrap-around support and services to increase the likelihood of program completion, employment outcomes, and career pathway advancement, including comprehensive case management with a trauma-informed  lens.

This funding opportunity will aid in providing programs that center around providing critical services for these OYAs that will accelerate their movement into family-sustaining jobs. This program will allow the state to implement projects that utilize innovative, OYA-centered outreach and program strategies for OYAs and place them in living-wage jobs, and also develop culturally competent services and programs tailored to the needs of young people with barriers experiencing unemployment or underemployment informed by OYA voice through engagement that builds on the experience and perspective of OYA for program design and delivery.
