Youth Employment Committee


The CETC Youth Development Committee is the lead entity for youth workforce policy in Connecticut. The committee will develop strategies to expose Connecticut youth to the world of work and increase opportunities for young people to identify career options and pursue career pathways, with a focus on targeted industry sectors critical to state economic growth. The committee will recommend policies and strategies supporting a mix of in-school and out-of-school experiences aligned with academic instruction. These strategies will introduce young people to career-related knowledge and skills and their use in the workforce, to help them make informed choices about paths to prepare for careers and adult life. These efforts are intended to seed the state’s talent pipeline with skilled individuals to support and sustain state economic growth. The committee’s broad objective is to ensure that all Connecticut youth are prepared for productive work and life-long learning by age 21.
