Out-of-School Youth – Pregnant & Parenting Young Adult
Division: Lower Shore Workforce Alliance The purpose of this RFP is to identify service providers for WIOA Out-of-School Youth training and employment services. While WIOA identifies multiple eligible populations, the Lower Shore Workforce Development Board has identified “pregnant or parenting youth” as a priority OSY population. The purpose of the selected program will be to engage young, unemployed or under-employed parent(s) (18-24) with job-readiness and parenting skills; and to deliver a short- to medium-length program for the target group with background and skills in career exploration, soft-skills, entry level training for themselves as well as best practices in early childhood development. Program outcomes should include linkages to employers, further education/training, employment as well as services and programs for young parent(s), childcare services etc. Earlier interventions with at-risk youth are needed, encouraging the use of evidence-based and innovative strategies at federal, state, and local levels.
