Career Pathways Partnerships. K-12 & Afterschool Policy Brief
Children Now
On June 30, 2010, California awarded $3 million to support teacher recruitment and training through the California Gang Reduction, Intervention and Prevention (CalGRIP) initiative, which assists young adults at risk of joining gangs in finding employment or pursuing an education. California chose to fund six Career Pathways Partnership projects as part of this initiative. The projects recruit, train and educate young adults in high-need communities to become credentialed teachers or pursue careers like youth counseling or social work. Unique partnerships between state universities, community colleges, school districts, community-based organizations and workforce development agencies provide guidance, case management and academic programs to ensure their success. Participants work part-time in afterschool programs, gaining valuable and career-relevant work experience and providing a positive example for at-risk children. (Contains 3 endnotes.)
