About the Youth Career Launch Program

The Youth Career Launch is a pilot program guided by the Equity Index and the Awareness, Experiential, Preparation and Launch (AEPL) model within the Career Connected Learning (CCL) framework. This will be accomplished by partnering with community organizations to provide career launch opportunities for young people aged 16-24 in port-related industries. The pilot will emphasize:

  • Working with BIPOC youth and communities in a workforce development capacity
  • Partnering with employers in port-related industries
  • Youth job training
  • Providing wrap-around services to facilitate workforce development opportunities
