The Youth Connections Community is an online learning destination for public workforce system staff and partners who serve youth in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Youth Program.

Additionally, by participating in the Youth Connections Community you will gain specific information on training opportunities for youth and youth workforce professionals; toolkits and other resources to help you do your job better; and you’ll easily stay on top of all announcements about upcoming youth related events.
