A. Youth & Adult Employment Policy Paper
After a 5-year hiatus, the Community Development Division has released a request for proposals (RFP) intended to support programming in both the youth and adult employment arenas. Any agency seeking City resources to support their youth or adult employment activities for 2018 and beyond will need to request funds through this RFP process.
For 2018, adult and youth employment programming are considered priorities under a new shared goal area: Building Human Capital as recommended in the City's Funding Process Study. Other concepts and recommendations brought forth from that effort informed a policy paper, Building Human Capital: Youth Employment and Adult Training and Employment Initiative" which had been prepared by CDD staff. This paper formed the basis of the RFP's content. It introduced the City's goal of funding a collaborative service continuum to meet the needs of youth and adults facing a variety of barriers to gainful employment. It describes specific service populations, program strategies, and related measurable outcomes.
This policy paper was introduced to and accepted by the Community Services Committee and the Common Council as a funding framework for the Youth and Adult Employment Initiative RFP that is now available for application.
