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, we reached our 2017 goal of finding jobs and internships for 2,051 young people. 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, hiring events and job fairs
  • Connections with thousands of job opportunities through our online portal
  • When eligible, support with transportation and clothing to help them succeed as they start work

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 nor working
  • 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.

Our current funders include some of the most respected foundations and agencies.
