WIOA Youth Programs

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act provides innovative programs to assist in-school and out-of-school Youth, as well as Youth with disabilities and other significant barriers to employment. These programs serve Youth between the ages of 16 to 24 by providing a broad array of activities designed for educational and occupational skills training in seven Local Workforce Development Areas throughout the State of Alabama. Current Youth programs in Alabama focus on educational attainment, work-based learning training opportunities, and training linked to careers aligned with the skills needs of industries throughout the State. The goal of these programs is to help Youth attain the education and employability skills that are necessary to get a job, retain their job, and advance in their chosen career pathway.
