Request for Proposal (RFP) Summary

Baltimore’s Promise requests proposals for a process evaluation of the Career Pathways Demonstration Model (Demonstration Model), a collaborative of Baltimore’s Promise, the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED), and Baltimore City Public Schools (City Schools), initiated to offer occupational skills training to City Schools graduates who do not plan to pursue higher education immediately after graduation.

The objectives of the Demonstration Model are to create a pathway connecting Baltimore City youth to career tracks that lead to family-supporting wages and to align education and employment systems to create a pathway from City Schools to occupational skills training programs to employment.

The process evaluation will employ diverse methodologies to assess the implementation of the Demonstration Model at all stages and draw conclusions about the degree to which the Demonstration Model made progress toward aligning institutions to connect students to employment opportunities via occupational training programs. The process evaluation will complement a comprehensive outcome evaluation. In the linked resources above, we offer a brief overview of the Demonstration Model, outline our evaluation objectives and research questions, and provide information about the evaluation application process.

Submitting a Proposal

The deadline to submit your proposal and related materials is 5:00 PM on May 8, 2018. You must e-mail your materials to Dr. Tiffany Davenport, Director of Data Partnerships at Baltimore’s Promise, at
