Youth Workforce Development Service Area Strategy
High School Partnerships
The High School Partnerships Strategy is designed to provide the opportunity for students at targeted SFUSD high schools to benefit from work-based learning and career exposure experiences that are embedded and intentionally connected to the school day. High School Partnership programs will work closely with school site staff to ensure the work-based learning opportunities align to students’ school-day curricula and support the development of college and career readiness skills. The High School Partnerships Strategy targets students at Downtown, John O’Connell, Phillip and Sala Burton, and SF International high schools, as well as June Jordan School for Equity.
DCYF allocated $2,043,000 in annual funding to five programs across four agencies for the High School Partnerships Strategy.
Strategy Goals include:
To reinforce the learning that takes place during the school day by embedding work based learning and career exploration activities in the school.
To motivate students to complete their education.
To provide students with opportunities to build their college and career readiness skills.
