Youth CareerConnect Grant

President Obama announced on April 7, 2014, that $107 million in grants will be allocated to build partnerships of school districts, community colleges, Workforce Investment Boards, and employers to scale up innovative education models across the country.

JFF is excited to be one of the 24 Youth CareerConnect grant recipients and will begin work immediately; the $4.9 million grant will be invested locally in three Massachusetts regions: Brockton/Plymouth County, Marlborough/Middlesex County, and West Springfield/Hampden County. This Massachusetts Advanced Pathways Program is built on proven models of building systems of career pathways that increase the number of youth who complete high school and attain a postsecondary credential with labor market value.
