Our work changes lives

and we can prove it.

Providing career paths for all young San Diegans across the county.

Thanks to the help of our generous supporters in 2018 we placed over 1,000 youth in jobs and internships in San Diego County . Now, we’re setting our sights even higher—but we can’t do it without your help. Your investment in CONNECT2Careers will provide the following for San Diego County’s young people:

  • A peer job coach for dedicated, one-on-one support
  • Access to trainings and hiring events
  • Connections with local job opportunities through our online portal
  • Support with transportation and clothing to help them succeed

Support for every young adult in San Diego.

We’re working even harder to build our support for populations with barriers to employment. Efforts towards this include:

  • Opportunity SD, a regional initiative to build systems that better serve opportunity youth—young adults ages 16–24 who are not working or in school.
  • Partnerships with the City of San Diego to hire opportunity youth as interns in City departments, and with the County of San Diego to hire opportunity youth as interns in County departments

To get involved, email C2CSD@workforce.org.

You’re in good company.
