SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

This proposed initiative targets young resident in the 18 to 24 age bracket in the Ward 1 through 4 of the DC. Approximately, 25% of Ward 1 residents and 18% of Ward 4 residents live in poverty. Thirty percent (30%) of youth in Ward 1 live below the federal poverty guidelines of $17,000 for a family of four . In 2016 report by the Community Foundation of the National Capital Region, titled: “GREATER WASHINGTON WORKS: IT and Health Careers with Promise” Information Technology and Healthcare were identified as the key drivers of the Washington regional economy. In contrast to relatively flat public sector hiring since 2010, healthcare and IT job growth in the region is expected to keep pace with or slightly exceed projected national job growth. The report finds: 12% projected growth in healthcare employment during 2016-2021. Employers in all industries across Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia will maintain strong demand for “middle-skill” workers during 2016-2021.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

CitiWide’s programs are designed with the mission to improve the employability, enhance skills and support steady career growth for low income individuals and families in Washington, D.C. Hence, since 1993, the Organization has brought the dreams of over 15,500 DC residents into fruition along the lines of the Organizations mission. CitiWide works in partnership with other non-profit and Governmental Agencies that share similar missions. The operational goals of our mission include:
i. Help clients identify new sustainable career paths;
ii. Empower clients on such paths; and
iii. Provide the catalyst and support needed to advance clients to professional levels on chosen paths.

The current proposal further strengthens the quality of training and partnerships that CitiWide uses to actualize the goals of its mission. Essentially, it covers courses and hands-on to guide the clients acquire vocational-, e-entrepreneurial-, financial-, and business support skills.

In 2016 report by the Community Foundation of the National Capital Region, titled: “GREATER WASHINGTON WORKS: IT and Health Careers with Promise” Information Technology and Healthcare were identified as the key drivers of the Washington regional economy. In contrast to relatively flat public sector hiring since 2010, healthcare and IT job growth in the region is expected to keep pace with or slightly exceed projected national job growth. The report finds: 12% projected growth in healthcare employment during 2016-2021. Employers in all industries across Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia will maintain strong demand for “middle-skill” workers during 2016-2021.

Nearly 800,000 individuals in the DC region have no education past high school. This highlights a skills gap that has the potential to undermine the region’s economic competitiveness. With over 70% of net new jobs requiring post-secondary education and training, the Washington regional economy continues to grow.
