WIOA Youth Program: Youth Workers

Young people need the skills, training and education to establish and follow their dreams. We are here to help them.  The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Youth Program provides year-round employment, academic, and training services to eligible out-of-school youth between the ages of 16 and 24 and in-school youth between the ages of 14 and 21. The program targets youth with barriers to employment.
