Led by Washington Alliance for Better Schools, Workforce Central, College Success Foundation, and Workforce Development Council of Seattle-King County

Regional Network Purpose

We help young people, especially those furthest from opportunity,

envision and achieve high opportunity careers in our regional economy.

As a regional support hub for career connected learning we

  • increase equitable participation,
  • build network capacity, and 
  • champion a cohesive and responsive regional ecosystem

through a collaborative network of K-12, higher education, industry, labor, and community-based organizations.

Spotlight: Azamaia, Palmer Scholars

Azamaia_Pic _1_.jpeg

Azamaia is a graduated scholar in the inaugural cohort of Palmer Pathways, a state-recognized construction pre-apprenticeship program that serves young adults who are neither in school nor gainfully employed. The program aims to provide Scholars with the tools necessary to build their brighter future. Soon after graduating from Palmer Pathways, Azamaia went to work full-time with Concrete Tech where he has thrived and continues to be a wonderful representative of Palmer Scholars and the Palmer Pathways program. He recently started a carpentry apprenticeship.


Being a part of such a great organization is something I am always proud of. Everyone at Palmer Scholars shows care for your future and helps you immensely to set things up for your future!”
