The Youth@Work 2020 Conference – Architects of the Future
DoubleTree by Hilton San Jose
January 14 – 16, 2020
Sponsored by the California Workforce Association
The Youth@Work Conference will address formidable issues facing youth and young adults in preparing for work even in today’s robust economy. As ever, the challenge is to help youth create viable economic futures, meaningful careers and life success trajectories in the context of this emerging future.
The Youth@Work 2020 Conference will provide a series of plenary speakers, panels, workshops and discussion sessions to help meet the challenges that youth providers, regions, local workforce development boards, community colleges, adult education, and other agencies and organizations face in providing effective services to WIOA eligible and other opportunity youth.
Youth Leadership Track
CWA strongly encourages youth 16 – 24 enrolled in workforce programs to participate in our special Youth Leadership Track. Registered youth may attend any and all functions and sessions during the Conference. Youth attendees often find their participation at the Conference to be a life changing experience.
Dwight Brydie Youth Scholarship
The California Workforce Association has established a youth scholarship program to assist in-program youth in California in achieving their educational and employment goals for the future. The $1000 scholarships are awarded yearly during the California Workforce Association’s Youth Conference – Youth@Work.
