Request For Proposals: Seeking Opportunity Youth Services
The New Orleans Business Alliance is seeking organizations that can provide coaching services for up to 112 opportunity youth in 2019-2020, with the potential for a renewal grant for services supporting up to 112 additional youth in 2020-2021.
These grants are made possible through support from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to support workforce systems efforts focused on opportunity youth, and to test a Pay-for-Success outcome-based contracting model with local workforce training partners. Funding can be used for:
- Barrier Removal: These sub-grants will assist partner alignment with requirements for co-enrollment with the public workforce system. Additionally it will allow for development of common intake processes across providers that connect to the system;
- Wrap-around Services: Sub-grants targeted toward establishing a continuum of supportive services for youth programs who have issues with retention because of limitations on supportive services; and,
- Post-Completion Support: Sub-grants target post-completion supports to connect youth who accomplish programmatic milestones such as, but not limited to foundational skills, internships, and/or attained entry-level credentials to transitional employment in hospitality.
This Request For Proposal aims to select providers to deliver coaching services aligned with the objectives of Hilton Foundation, NOLABA, and the broader New Orleans community.
