WIOA Youth Services

For teens and young adults ages 14-24


There are many challenges facing young adults that can make completion of high school or securing a job difficult.  For many, it's hard to see what the role of education is and how it relates to the jobs they will need to support themselves.  Young adults also often lack the skills they need to secure or keep employment.  Through a variety of services offered under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, youth can gain valuable skills that will give them the promise of a bright future.


Sample of services offered:

Graduate Recovery / Jobs for Ohio's Graduates (JOG)

Designed for youth ages 14-21, JOG is a school-to-career transition program that helps at-risk youth obtain a high school diploma, even if they have not been successful in the traditional classroom setting.
