Thriving Residents
 
Reason for Recommended Action/Background
The approval of the subgrant allows Yolo County to continue to receive WIOA funds to provide authorized services to customers who meet the eligibility criteria.  The funding for the youth portion of the program is allocated in April of each year and provides for youth services, management, staff, oversight and monitoring of the WIOA program. 
 
The WIOA youth grant provides assistance to local at-risk youth to gain skills and confidence to obtain their high school diploma or GED and to enter the workforce as educated citizens working toward a sustainable career.  Young people without educational credentials face tough times in the job market.  The WIOA youth program provides services and activities for improving educational attainment, preparing for employment success and providing supportive services to assist in attaining the youth’s goals by ensuring youth in Yolo County have the necessary education, skills and training to compete in the local economy. 
Collaborations (including Board advisory groups and external partner agencies)
The local Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Board coordinates program activities with the One-Stop Career Partners and the Capital Area Investment Zone.
