Youth FORCE kids and staff

The CSC has budgeted approximately $366,000 in FY 20/21 and $3,000,000 in FY 21/22 for the Youth FORCE 2021 and LEAP High 2021 Requests for Proposals (RFP).

The intent of these RFPs is to provide year-round out-of-school time strategic youth development programming serving at-promise middle and/or high school youth. This is in response to the tremendous impact the pandemic has had on many students, with thousands not meeting adequate academic progress and the need for additional supportive services for students attending the 80% Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) middle and high schools CSC is not currently serving.

Apply: Youth FORCE and LEAP High 2021 RFPs

Completed applications must be submitted through CAPS on by 4:00 p.m. on April 16, 2021. LATE SUBMISSIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

A virtual Pre-Bid Conference will be held on April 1, 2021 at 1:30p.m. via Zoom. This will be the only opportunity to receive verbal instructions regarding the RFPs. To register for the conference, click HERE.

The procurement is available through CSC’s web-based Contract Administration and Procurement System (CAPS) and responses to this procurement must be submitted through CAPS. Training on the use of CAPS will take place during the Pre-Bid Conference.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Application submission through CAPS requires that the “Agency Financial Viability” section of CAPS be submitted PRIOR to the RFP application submission.
