WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor announced Friday the availability of $15 million in grant funding to support programs that help youth — particularly those in rural areas, people of color and people with disabilities — to overcome obstacles to educational and workforce success with training and career guidance.

Administered by the department’s Employment and Training Administration, Workforce Pathways For Youth grants will support connections between out-of-school time organizations and state and local workforce partners to deliver career-focused programs to equip teens and young adults with the skills they need to succeed in college or in the workforce.
