WIOA outlines a vision for supporting youth and young adults through an integrated service delivery system. This vision includes high quality services for in-school and out-of-school youth beginning with career exploration and guidance, continued support for educational attainment, opportunities for skills training, and culminating with a good job along a career pathway or enrollment in post-secondary education.

  • Paid and Unpaid Work Experience is a structured learning experience in a workplace and provides opportunities for career exploration and skill development   
  • Occupational Skills Training is an organized program of study that provides specific skills and leads to proficiency in an occupational field
  • Adult Mentoring is a formal relationship between a youth and an adult mentor with structured activities where the mentor offers guidance, support, and encouragement
  • Follow-up Services are provided following program exit to help ensure youth succeed in employment or education
