The #CaliforniansForAll Youth Jobs Corps is a Governor’s initiative administered by California Volunteers in partnership with municipalities and community-based organizations across the state. The purpose of this initiative is to bring together youth across the state to help address urgent challenges in California’s communities. Participants will be paid a living wage while learning key job skills, developing public service career pathways, and engaging in critical community work.
This program will leverage partnerships with local governments and community-based organizations to scale workforce development opportunities. Given the numerous partners required to roll out a campaign of this scale, brand guidelines were established to both create a visual identity to build brand awareness, but also to ensure that all partners have a clear path forward of how to represent the brand individually or in partnership with their own.
The Green Cadre is one of Monterey County WDB’s five Cadre initiatives, along with Health Cadre, IT Cadre, Leadership Cadre, and Future Innovators Cadre.
