The Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS) Chicagobility program seeks to fund agencies who have experience in implementing project-based learning, workforce development, civic engagement, and training programs for young people ages 14 and 15 in Chicago (refer to Program Requirements listed in RFP). This RFP seeks to provide the opportunity to building their self-discovery and self-awareness through career exploration to young people by exposing them to various public and private sector industries and building their self-discovery and self-awareness. Ultimately, we are seeking to increase young people’s income and develop their 21st century skills.
Chicagobility’s program model is delivered in a cohort of 20 youth with a youth coordinator. The program will pay youth a stipend of $75 a week for 6 weeks for a total of $450. Each youth will participate in 120 hours of project-based activities over the course of six weeks that will be submitted or presented at the end of the program.
DFSS anticipates funding approximately 37 applications within a range of $20,608 – $309,120 per year. This contract will operate on a reimbursement basis only. No advances will be given.
The term of contract(s) executed under this RFP will be from April 1, 2022 – December 31, 2023. Based on need, availability of funds and contractor performance, DFSS may extend this term for one additional year. Continued support will be dependent upon the selected Respondent’s performance and the continued availability of funding. DFSS budgets $20,608 for one cohort of 20 youth and one youth coordinator.
