Construction Career Jumpstart (CCJ) is a four-week, 160-hour training program that covers the fundamental skills needed for participants to launch a career in the energy, construction, and utilities sector. The San Diego Workforce Partnership acts as the fiscal agent for the program and provides case management, while the construction training is provided by San Diego Electrical Training Institute (ETI), a long-standing fixture in the local construction industry with decades of experience and a connection to the local electrical workers union, IBEW 569.  

The San Diego Workforce Partnership is soliciting proposals to perform strategic outreach in San Diego’s underserved, ethnically diverse communities to drive enrollments in the CCJ program. Our goal is to expand upon the reach of our existing outreach efforts and engage new audiences. Outreach should include, but not be limited to: 

  • Presentations at community events 
  • Meetings with influential leaders and groups  
  • Social media posts 

Proposals should provide a clear approach to helping us meet and exceed our recruitment targets. The successful respondent will be asked to develop and execute a strategic outreach plan that will foster relationships with diverse organizations and create a pipeline of qualified Black job seeker leads to the program.
