In mid-September, we announced the selection of our regional partners who will be continuing the work of Career Connect Washington. After a rigorous application process, a cohort of regional networks and intermediary organizations have been named to expand career-connected learning programs across Washington.
Regional Networks are the key to scaling career connected learning statewide and will play an integral role in convening and managing regional, cross-industry partnerships that will lead to expansion of opportunities for Washington youth.
Career Connect intermediaries bridge connections between industry and educators to create and scale Career Launch, Preparation, and Awareness/Exploration programs. We received applications for twice as much grant funding as available so applicants who were not selected in Round 1 will be able to revise and re-submit their proposals in Round 2.
We look forward to working with these organizations in reaching the goal of 60% of students in the class of 2030 completing Career Launch and 100% of students completing Career Preparations, Awareness and Exploration.
