New America - Partnership to Advance Youth Apprenticeship (PAYA)
03/08/19 11:59 PM PST
Grants to USA partnerships for new and established youth apprenticeship activities. Funding is intended to create and implement strategies that advance youth apprenticeship in regions, cities, and states across the country. Grants will support cross-site learning, strategy development, and implementation activities that strengthen equitable outcomes for students, employers, and communities. Partnerships must include leaders from industry, as well as secondary and post-secondary education.
Apprenticeship is a proven education and workforce strategy that combines paid, structured on-the-job training with related, classroom learning. A youth apprenticeship is a structured, work-based learning program designed to start when apprentices are in high school.
Statewide, regional, or local partnerships may use this opportunity to develop and implement a strategy that culminates in the launch of a new, scalable, high-quality youth apprenticeship program by fall 2020, and is a first step within a broader plan for multi-year expansion. This opportunity can also be used to develop and implement a strategy to expand and/or improve an existing youth apprenticeship program or system. Strategies might include:
- Expanding the scope of an existing program to new careers or industries and/or significantly increasing the number of participating students and employers within existing focus areas;
- Replicating it across new communities or regions;
- Taking steps to promote more equitable access and outcomes for students across demographic groups, communities and regions;
- Improving post-secondary connections and opportunities for apprentices to earn early college credit.
Aligned with PAYA’s National Principles for High-Quality Youth Apprenticeship, grantees will develop and implement strategies that:
- Launch and expand youth apprenticeship pathways that are aligned to careers that pay family supporting wages and address the workforce needs of local industry partners;
- Advance policy and system alignment to mainstream youth apprenticeship as a high-quality post-secondary option for high school age youth, with equitable access and outcomes; and
- Articulate a long-term vision and plan for the sustainable expansion of their youth apprenticeship program(s).
Allowable uses of funds include:
- Partner and leadership convening;
- Coordination and implementation capacity building through dedicated program staff and/or consulting resources;
- Research and communications;
- Other purposes associated with planning and implementation costs for pilot programs or program improvements, including supportive services to address equity gaps.
