San Diego Invests $1 Million in Program to Help Young People Secure Jobs

On September 7, 2021, the San Diego Workforce Partnership and the City of San Diego announced the new San Diego County youth workforce development system to help provide education, training, and jobs to young San Diegans ages 16 to 24. 

The funding came from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and a $1-million investment from the City of San Diego that provides training and workforce development services to young San Diegans from August 2021 to June 2022.

“The future of San Diego’s economy and labor market lies within the hands of the next generation of great San Diego workers. We believe in empowering all job seekers, including our young workers, to find the intersection between what they love to do, what they can be paid for and what employers need,” said Peter Callstrom, President and CEO of the San Diego Workforce Partnership.

The San Diego Workforce Partnership's career centers will be working with four community-based organizations to serve the following communities. 

Those ages 16 to 24 years old can apply here for help securing a job through the San Diego Workforce Partnership.
