The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) outlines a broad youth vision that supports an integrated service delivery system and provides a framework through which states and local areas can leverage other Federal, state, local, and philanthropic resources to support in-school and out-of-school youth.
The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) at the U.S. Department of Labor has developed a series of technical assistance resources to help state and local workforce leaders, youth program practitioners, and other stakeholders and partners better understand and successfully implement the WIOA youth program.
