2022 Youth and Adult Employment RFP


This RFP seeks proposals from organizations that will, together, provide a continuum of services ranging from supported high school graduation, GED attainment, pre and post-employment training and services, employment and career guidance, and work placement for youth, young adults, and adults who face barriers to gainful employment. In addition to the direct personal economic benefits that accrue to participants, creating pathways to employment also serves as one approach to addressing racial and economic disparities, juvenile delinquency, and neighborhood violence.

The City is seeking proposals from organizations with demonstrated successes in and a willingness to support one or more of the following services: 

  • Youth Employment Services (ages 14-21)
  • Young Adult Employment Services (ages 18-26)
  • Adult Employment Services (ages 18+)
