The Foundation supports employers, high school, and college students and staff in developing programs and systems that create and sustain a diverse, well prepared workforce.
The Foundation’s Workforce Services team develops tools, materials, events, and workshops to support programs and systems of work-based learning. Our team’s expertise is in actively engaging businesses, educational institutions, and students to support the future workforce of California. We partner with other non-profits, workforce investment boards, colleges, high schools, and private funders.
While the Foundation has been placing college and university students in jobs since 1998, much of our work across the state is newly emerging. Today’s businesses, postsecondary institutions, workforce investment boards, secondary schools, public funders, and private donors all seek to address issues central to preparing youth for future career success, and the Foundation’s Workforce Services are creating the infrastructure to help these individuals work together to develop lasting solutions.
