The WIOA Youth Program is designed to meet the needs of young adults, ages 16 through 24, who are out-of-school and facing barriers to employment. The program aims to prepare participants for employment through enhanced job skills, education, credential attainment, and career exploration. Year-round services are designed to promote continuous educational achievement, leadership skills, and workforce readiness.

Program participants receive the benefit of a comprehensive assessment to ascertain their level of basic skills, occupational skills, and transferable skills. The assessment also measures work aptitudes and interests. The comprehensive assessment provides the youth with a better understanding of their strengths and interests, enabling him/her to make more informed vocational decisions.
