Happy Post-Daylight Saving Time!

This month we not only say goodbye to the sun earlier in the day, but we also celebrate Native American Heritage Month, or as it is commonly referred to, American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month. It is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. For technical assistance resources specific to Indians and Native Americans, visit the Indian and Native American Community of Practice.

 

This Friday, November 11th, we will also commemorate Veterans' Day and honor American veterans—living or dead. For resources on veterans and the workforce system, including WIOA, you can review this fact sheet; visit the Veterans’ Priority Collection on WorkforceGPS; or sign up for the U.S. Department of Labor’s newsletter on the subject.

 

Next week, November 14th – 20th, we will also celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, which occurred last year for the first time following a proclamation by President Obama. You can learn more at the ApprenticeshipUSA Community of Practice or by visiting: https://www.dol.gov/apprenticeship/NAW/.

 

In addition to these important commemorative events, the WorkforceGPS Team is proud to announce a new resource within the Innovation and Opportunity Network (ION): the WIOA Implementation Training page. This page allows you to quickly find all of the latest WIOA Implementation Training Resources in 11 focus areas. Be sure to keep an eye on ION, because there are additions coming to the site soon.

 

With gratitude, the WorkforceGPS team also wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving!
