Youth Workforce Development Strategies

Washington’s Strategic Plan for Workforce Development (High Skills, High Wages) offers a comprehensive look at our state’s workforce challenges and opportunities, focusing on three goals related to Youth, Adult and Industry. This page details Washington's workforce development strategy for youth.

Youth Goal: Ensure all youth receive the education, training, and support they need for success in postsecondary education and/or work.

Objective 1 - A K-12 Guidance and Counseling System provides students and their parents with a curriculum to individually plan their pathways and prepare for future education and/or work after high school.

Objective 2 - All students leave high school prepared for success in further education and/or work.

Objective 3 - All students graduate from high school.

Objective 4 - Reduce unemployment rates among older youth, and improve their career prospects.
