Excerpt from JCYC Up Close Spring 2019 JCYC has been called upon to support San Francisco’s new Opportunities for All (OFA) initiative. The program’s core objective is to expand access to youth employment in San Francisco. As a product of JCYC’s Mayor’s Youth Employment and Education Program (MYEEP), Mayor London Breed has first-hand experience of the youth workforce development opportunities we can deliver. Since OFA’s launch in January 2019, JCYC has been working directly with various youth providers, city departments, employers, and the San Francisco Unified School District to help ensure that a sustainable employment pipeline is being built to achieve economic inclusion for all young people in San Francisco. JCYC’s key role has included recruiting youth, creating and guiding youth through the application process, and supporting the planning and implementation of OFA. According to JCYC’s Director of Youth Workforce Programs, Alvin Woo, “OFA is a great continuation of the commitment the City of San Francisco and its non-profit and business partners have made to support youth, as they prepare to become thriving adults in society. JCYC’s participation is both an honor and validation of what we do. It is also an immense responsibility to San Francisco’s youth - we hope to knock it out of the park and provide them with the professional development resources they need.” In the Office of the Mayor’s Press Release on October 17, 2018, which can be found here https://bit.ly/2PjTlDw, Mayor Breed said, “Our economy needs to work for everyone in our City. Too many of our young people are being left behind because they do not have the skills, education, and exposure at an early age to career opportunities that can transform their lives. My own internship experiences in high school were essential to my success, and I want every kid in San Francisco to have that same opportunity.” JCYC is proud that it played a role in supporting Mayor Breed’s professional development and success, and we are excited to be working alongside her now to deliver her groundbreaking OFA initiative!
