Youth Committees Successes and Lessons Learned: Share your good work and advance the field!

Youth Committees Successes and Lessons Learned: Share your good work and advance the field!

WIOA Youth committees allow state and local areas to be strategic in delivering comprehensive youth services. 

Share with your colleagues in the youth field how your youth committee has been successful at advancing your state or local area’s youth goals and what have been the challenges. 

As experts, we want to ensure that you have an opportunity to share your good work with the field and that you can learn from others.

Also, we may give you a shout out or ask you in advance to share your successes and what you’ve learned on the our upcoming webinar Coming Together at the Table--The Power of Youth Committees to Convene,Coordinate and Collectively Impact Youth Lives on October 25th.
