In 2015, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) went into effect and as the implementation progresses, there are new opportunities and challenges facing YouthBuild programs.  The daily operation of a YouthBuild program requires intentional planning and continuous quality improvement in order to meet the needs of youth participants and the demands of grant requirements.

Description

Join the DOL YouthBuild September 2018 webinar, "Building Your Toolbox: Program Design and WIOA Resource Spotlights," as we explore some great tools and best practices to strengthen program and participant success.  This webinar will spotlight a number of resources and best practices related to program planning, program management, and performance outcomes.

At the completion of this webinar, participants will:

  • Understand how to navigate Workforce GPS to find resources to strengthen programming and WIOA alignment;
  • Identify continuous quality improvement strategies to ensure quality programming and positive performance outcomes; and
