Youth Outcomes

Our Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) resources to serve youth are invested through NextGen, a system of 9 service providers managed by Worksystems with expertise in serving a diverse population of disconnected and low-income youth. Our investments prepare youth for college and career-ladder employment through degree or certificate attainment, work readiness training, career exploration and transition to post-secondary education.
