What is WIOA?
WIOA stands for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. This replaced the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) in July 2015. WIOA was designed to help residents get the training and education to launch careers in local industries. At the same time, WIOA also provides a steady stream of workers to area businesses to keep the economy growing. Services are broken down into youth, adult, and dislocated worker.
Where we offer Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act
It’s always a privilege to help a hero. Lance, an Iraq war veteran, came to WIOA frustrated. He had a bachelor’s degree and could get interviews, but wasn’t getting any job offers. Working with us, he brushed up his interview skills and did internships to get solid references and work experience. Then he worked a couple of limited term jobs that resulted in the chance of a lifetime. Late last year, the Department of Veteran’s Affairs offered him a position. Not only is the job in his field, it’s also a chance to help veterans like himself. Congratulations to Lance and thank you for your service.
