Youth Workforce Overview
Through the WIOA Youth Workforce Development Financial Literacy Program, low-income youth, ages 16 through 24, gain knowledge and skills surrounding personal finance and decision-making. It’s offered to those who are deficient in basic literacy skills, homeless, school drop-outs, ex-offenders, runaways, foster children, pregnant or parenting, or English language learners.
The program is made possible through a professional services agreement with the Stark Tuscarawas Workforce Developmental Board for the Comprehensive Case Management and Employment, a component of the Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act (WIOA), and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
You can help at-risk youth become financially independent by becoming a volunteer or give an online gift.
