WIOA - Youth

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) - Youth provides employment and training services to economically disadvantaged youth possessing specific barriers to employment. New Hampshire's priorities for this funding are for dropout prevention and/or recovery models. Program focus is on comprehensive youth services consisting of fourteen program elements which can be grouped around four major themes:

  • Improving educational achievement (including such elements as tutoring, study skills training, and instruction leading to secondary school completion; dropout out prevention strategies, and alternative secondary school offerings),
  • Offering services intended to develop the potential of youth as citizens and leaders (including leadership development opportunities).
  • Preparing for and succeeding in employment (including summer employment opportunities, paid and unpaid work experience, and occupational skills training),
  • Supporting youth (including meeting supportive services needs and providing adult mentoring, follow-up services, and comprehensive guidance and counseling) and
