2021 CaliforniansForAll Youth Workforce Development Program
The CaliforniansForAll Youth Workforce Program is a Governor’s initiative administered by California
Volunteers in partnership with cities across California. The purpose of this initiative is to increase youth
employment, develop youth interest in and experience towards a career, and to strengthen city capacity
to address key areas of climate, food insecurity, and local COVID-19 recovery.
The CaliforniansForAll Youth Workforce Development Program is a Governor’s initiative
administered by CaliforniaVolunteers in partnership with California counties and cities with
populations of less than 300,000. This program will bring together youth across the state to help
address urgent challenges in their communities, while simultaneously learning key skills and
earning money to help create career pathways.
Beginning in early 2022, award recipients will recruit, train, and place high need youth at jobs in a
new or existing youth workforce development program. Each municipality is responsible for
selecting or creating these job positions and recruiting, hiring, and managing youth. Municipalities
are encouraged to sub-grant to existing community-based organizations (CBOs) with the capacity
to manage these programs in areas where feasible. Programs may run continuously or be
structured as intermittent summer programs. Regardless of length of program, all youth positions
must be 50-100% full-time equivalents (FTE).
