Developing a strong approach to career connected learning in Washington depends upon a network of program intermediaries who help connect employers, educators, employers, and others.

Intermediaries bridge connections between industry and educators to help create and scale programs. They work with industry and educators to develop curricula and expand access to career connected learning programs, such as youth- and adult- registered apprenticeship programs. They also work to inform young adults and families of available programs, and to generally align the needs of both employers and young people.

Program intermediaries must form partnerships with employers and education institutions and apply jointly (a full list of responsibilities is included in the RFP).

We have now begun an request for proposals (RFP) process to provide this funding.
