WIOA Youth Programs
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) 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 14 and 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 opportunities, and training linked to careers aligned with the skills needs for in-demand industries throughout the state. The goal of these programs is to help Youth attain the education and job skills that are necessary for employment and advancement in their chosen career pathway.
