The Career Connected Washington plan, which builds the framework for a statewide career connected learning system, was signed into law this past session. House Bill (HB) 2158 establishes a Career Connected Learning (CCL) cross-agency workgroup to continue the work of establishing and expanding CCL program statewide.

HB 2158 also establishes competitive CCL grants, in which program intermediaries can apply. A program intermediary is an organization that works with multiple employers, labor partners, and educational institutions (within K-12 and postsecondary) to:

  • Develop curricula for new and innovative programs, and scale existing career awareness and exploration, career preparation, and endorsed career launch programs

  • Convene industry and educators to define CCL opportunities and align on needs

  • Generate demand with young adults and families
