United Way Award

Yolo County Office of Education was honored to named Outstanding Community Partner by the United Way California Capital Region. We are honored to be one of many partners creating a positive impact in Yolo County for children and families.

In partnership with the United Way, Yolo County Office of Education (YCOE) has been working to launch a Yolo County Youth Internship Program to serve youth 16-22 years old. This internship program will combine work-based, on-the-job learning with career readiness training that business partners have been asking for. Students who are in high school Career Technical Education (CTE) programs will have the opportunity to connect to their relevant technical education in the classroom. The internship program will strive to ensure students graduate with the skills to be college, career and life ready.

“YCOE is fortunate to be partnered with the United Way on this exciting new initiative,” said Superintendent Garth Lewis. “It is essential that we are providing opportunities for students to learn career readiness skills to be successful in their lives after high school.”
