The Board of Supervisors allocated Measure A funds for foster youth education and employment proposals for fiscal years 2015 through 2017. On August 18, 2015, the San Mateo County Human Services Agency released a request for proposal process (RFP) asking for proposals for a variety of foster youth education and employment services. American Federation of Labor, Congress of Industrial Relations-Fresno, Madera, Tulare, and Kings Counties Dba Central Labor Council Partnership (CLCP) was chosen based on their successful outcomes and quality services throughout the Bay Area.
CLCP will provide a comprehensive array of workforce development services to foster youth enrolled in San Mateo County high schools which will result in increased skills acquisition and employment among foster youth. This will contribute to long range career and educational goals for the youth of San Mateo County. CLCP will focus on providing services to a minimum of 40 foster youth in the areas of career exploration, individual employment plans, soft and hard skills development, and job development.
The agreement and resolution have been reviewed and approved by County Counsel as to form.
This agreement contributes to the Shared Vision 2025 outcome of a Prosperous Community providing economic strategies that foster innovation through educational opportunities to youth to enhance their academic knowledge leading to greater education, job opportunities, and self-sufficiency later in life. It is anticipated that there will be a 12% increase in the high school graduation rate of dependent foster youth engaged in foster youth educational and employment programs offered through San Mateo County. CLCP will serve a minimum of 40 dependent foster youth.
