This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is soliciting proposals from organizations that have demonstrated ability in providing one or more of the three Hire LA’s Youth tiered services; entry level, emerging level, and advanced level, as described in Section 3 of the RFQ package, “Hire LA’s Youth System Services.” Successful proposers will be placed on a pre-qualified list and can be contracted with the City of Los Angeles, Economic and Workforce Development Department (EWDD) for the delivery of services.
With a focus on youth with multiple barriers, the Hire LA’s Youth system seeks to collaborate with public and private agencies whose values, goals, and objectives are aligned. In order to accomplish the vision that all L.A. youth are connected to education and employment matching their level of need, successful proposers will be required to collaborate, partner, and cooperate with system partners who can provide participants paid work experience and basic support services on a tiered program approach. All Hire LA Youth Programs will be required to demonstrate the ability to provide services at one or more youth tiers based on their capacity to offer more intensive or less intensive workforce development services. Providers, partners, and youth will be categorized by tiers and connected to one another according to the defined services and needs at each tier.
This RFQ was released on June 14, 2023, and is available for review and download at Regional Alliance Marketplace for Procurement (RAMP)
