California College Pathways (CCP) supports a collective impact effort to increase college access and success for foster youth.
California College Pathways foster youth providers could benefit from collaborating with the Adult Education Block Grant (AEBG), Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title II adult education, and WIOA Title I youth and adult career pathway programs. The initiative could also integrate with community colleges’ Student Equity Plan preparations, ensuring all participants have equal opportunity for postsecondary success. Further, connecting this initiative to WIOA Title I industry sector partnerships could help leverage employer engagement in high-occupations.
CCP could utilize Linked Learning; AEBG; contextualized integrated instructional strategies; WIOA Title I adult and youth transitional jobs and on-the-job training. This could help connect CCP to initiative-focused, evidence-based instructional practices to deliver Integrated Education and Training and work-based learning
