New Skills for Youth Initiative

Kentucky is one of 10 states that will receive a $2 million grant to strengthen and expand career education pathways for students. Grant monies will be made available to local school districts through a competitive process that will allow for the development of regional career academies that align to state and regional industry sector needs based on the four workforce regions. This could include options for local districts to transition state operated area technology centers and locally operated technical centers to regional academies through the collaboration of two or more school districts and a postsecondary education partner.   A link is below that provides a snapshot of Kentucky’s work through this initiative.
