Tutoring, Study Skills Training, Instruction, and Dropout Prevention
One of the 14 program elements for the WIOA youth program is tutoring, study skills training, instruction and dropout prevention strategies that lead to completion of a high school diploma or a recognized equivalent.
Tutoring, study skills training, and instruction that leads to a high school diploma includes services such as providing academic support, helping a youth identify areas of academic concern, assisting with overcoming learning obstacles, or providing tools and resources to develop learning strategies. Tutoring, study skills training, and instruction can be provided one-on-one, in a group setting, or through developed resources and workshops.
Dropout prevention strategies intended to lead to a high school diploma include activities that keep a young person in-school and engaged in a formal learning and/or training setting. Strategies include, but are not limited to, tutoring, literacy development, active learning experiences, after-school opportunities, and individualized instruction.
