This Sample DOL YouthBuild Participant Folder was developed to assist grantees in creating participant folders that meet Federal Guidelines. While this is not the only way to set up a participant folder, it does demonstrate and include all required eligibility, testing and in program work, as well as placement /retention services and case notes.

This product was developed prior to WIOA; however, many of the concepts and ideas are still valid within the WIOA platform.

Keys to a participant folder are:
  • Documentation is organized and complete for all participants folders
  • Participant folders are kept secure
  • All participant folders are in line with DOL Standards, following the Core Monitoring Guide, Case Management Tools, and the YouthBuild Eligibility Requirements and Source Documentation Introduction
