WIOA Youth Program

WIOA Youth Program

If you are a young adult between the ages of 16-24 and are looking to develop and reach your career goals - whether or not you have completed your high school credential - Workforce Partnership can help you achieve them!  We specialize in working with young adults who are excited about their potential, but who perhaps need assistance in breaking through some of the barriers that prevent them from participating fully in the workforce and in their own success.  Our WIOA Young Adult program is an “intensive” program and can provide you with a wide range of services and funding to assist you with education and employment. All young adults can take advantage of our “Basic Services” regardless of income, lay off status or residency.  “Intensive Services” are available to those young adults who are low income and/or have specific barriers to employment.
