Happy September!

This month, the WorkforceGPS Team is proud to bring you a new desk aid, a timely spotlight on one of our Community of Practices, and a reminder about a couple upcoming events.

 

New Desk Aid: Back-to-Work Backpack

As the kids head back to school and changing colors usher in the Fall weather, the WorkforceGPS Team wants to make sure you are prepared to get back into the swing of things. To that end, we have compiled a handy list of resources across Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) hot topics; click here to check out our Back-to-Work Backpack. Also worth taking a look at, the American Job Center Network Overview Infographic.


Community of Practice Spotlight: Older Workers

This month, the WorkforceGPS Team would like to introduce you to the Older Workers Community of Practice (CoP). This CoP is an online hub to share resources, news, and emerging practices about the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), which provides on-the-job skills training to individuals 55 or older with limited financial resources. This site is designed to facilitate peer-to-peer communication among SCSEP grantees and sub-grantees, Federal Project Officers, and the national program office. To visit this CoP today, click here.

 

Upcoming Events: NEOWW and Youth Virtual Learning Series

Also worth noting, the last full week of September (24th – 30th) is National Employ Older Workers Week (NEOWW). NEOWW annually recognizes the vital role of older workers in the workforce and aims to increase awareness of this segment of workers and develop innovative strategies to utilize it.

 

Finally, the Youth Services Team via the Youth Connections Community of Practice is excited to launch Our Journey Together: The WIOA Youth Program Technical Assistance (TA) Series. This series will kick off on October 24th and 25th and cover topics such as eligibility, youth committees, performance and more. More information and registration opportunities to come!

 

Stay smart!
