The St. Louis Regional Youth Employment Coalition (RYEC), in partnership with the Clark-Fox Family Foundation, provides an online resource for teachers, counselors, parents and students to use to search credentialing and apprenticeship opportunities in the St. Louis region called Blueprint4Careers
. This free, innovative web platform connects young people to training programs for high-growth, high-demand occupations with livable wages and career advancement opportunities.
Blueprint4Careers is part of RYEC’s mission to increase youth employability and create diverse talent pipelines by connecting young people in our region with high quality work-based learning and employment opportunities. Nine Network’s American Graduate initiative has been a critical partner in the solidification of the coalition and the development of Blueprint4Careers. American Graduate’s content has been interwoven into the platform so that users can develop a better understanding of the high-demand skilled careers in our community.
