SCPa Works is soliciting proposals for Business Education Partnership and Career Awareness activities in our region. The applications are due July 13. Submit proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to be considered for funding, an application must provide for direct student involvement in career awareness and exposure activities. The applicant or partnership is recommended to include business entities, School Districts, career and technical schools, and institutions of higher education. Additional partners, community-based organizations (e.g., nonprofits, afterschool, summer learning programs, youth development centers, and recreation departments), trade associations, economic development entities, etc. will be considered favorably.
SCPa Works will be focusing on four key pillars of strategy for implementation of grant activity and programming with BEP funds through a rigorous Request for Quote (RFQ) process. We are looking to fund projects that align with PA Career Education & Work
(CEW) standards and the Chapter 339 plans, and will invest in programs that support them to include one or more of our four pillars of strategy listed below.
- Career Awareness and Opportunities
