GWB Releases Grant Solicitation for Statewide Career Readiness Intermediary

The Governor’s Workforce Board has released a Grant Solicitation for a Statewide Career Readiness Intermediary on January 8, 2018.

The purpose of this Solicitation is to incubate an experienced entity or partnership of entities as a centralized statewide intermediary to support the expansion of K-12 career readiness activities, including paid internships, other work-based learning opportunities, and career exploration activities.  The intermediary will implement and scale out a high-quality internship program for high school students and will serve as a centralized coordinating body for the state to scale out career readiness activities in an efficient, demand-driven, and consistent way that meets employers’ needs and is also aligned with the work of K-12 schools.  The intermediary will act as a connector between employers and schools and/or other youth-serving organizations to place students in work-based learning and other career readiness activities.

Applications are due on February 8, 2018, and a pre-proposal conference will be scheduled for Friday, January 19th, 1:30-3:00pm at the Department of Labor and Training in Room 73-1.  Potential applicants are highly encouraged to attend and RSVP to pauline.abetti@dlt.ri.gov.
