Enough is Known for Action: Firing Up Youth Standing Committees

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

2:00 PM ~ 3:30 PM ET

This session is the fourth webinar in the Enough is Known for Action series for the youth community, hosted by the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) Division of Youth Services and Regional Offices, to inspire strategic planning and action now in anticipation of the July 1, 2015 implementation date of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).


Helping in-school and out-of-school youth access the services and supports they need to succeed is a critical goal of WIOA. Workforce Development Boards in partnership with their Youth Standing Committees are key connectors and conveners for local youth programs and resources. This engaging and interactive webinar will provide information, resources, and local examples that will inform your program's WIOA implementation strategies and service delivery. We have an amazing array of workforce system leaders lined up for you this month, and hope you will join us!

Through your participation on the webinar you will:

  • Understand the nuts and bolts of WIOA Youth Standing Committee requirements and opportunities
  • Learn from your peers about their transition from Youth Councils to Youth Standing Committee plans going forward
  • Hear from Youth Committee leaders about great work that is already underway
  • Share and identify other tools and resources that would be helpful for all Youth Standing Committees across the country
