WIOA, an intensive workforce development program, gives youth and young adults individualized, long-term support in working toward their educational and occupational goals. In addition to working one-

on-one with a Workforce Development Specialist, participants have the opportunity to participate in job readiness training, paid internships, and professional training programs. Participants also receive support in overcoming barriers to work and school, including financial assistance, referral to community resources, and advocacy in accessing those resources. Some eligibility restrictions apply. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, youth receive virtual and remote support.
