Grants to Nevada Chambers of Commerce, Regional Development Authorities, and Local Workforce Investment Boards to develop and implement work-based learning programs. Funding is intended to connect employers with school programs that align with region-specific, high-wage, high-skill, in-demand industries and occupations. The four priority career pathway areas are Education, Healthcare, Manufacturing, and Technology.

The purpose of the New Skills for Youth grant funds is to drive change at the school or district level through strengthening and expanding career pathways for Nevada youth and young adults. More specifically, the Department of Education has aligned the funding towards employer engagement through work-based learning programs that engage individuals in career exploration, internships, pre-apprenticeships and registered apprenticeship programs.

The scope of works must include strategic goals to support employer engagement and demonstrate how existing relationships will be leveraged to:

  1. Strengthen the understanding and awareness of emerging jobs and the necessary skills and credentials to fill them;
  2. Build partnerships between employers and employer organizations and local school districts and community colleges to align the education to workforce pipeline; and
  3. Garner commitment from employers to provide students effective work-based learning opportunities.

Outcomes of this grant should include development of a viable and scalable model for supporting employers in the region as they invest in work-based learning. Applicant should also describe how work will advance identified career pathways to provide not only employment but education, training and support services for individuals, particularly those with barriers to employment to ensure equitable opportunity and development of education and skills for preparation and entrance into the pipeline at various points.
