Adults & Dislocated Workers Youth
The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) is a federally funded program that establishes the Workforce Development System and provides funding to support training and employment services for adults, dislocated workers and low-income, at-risk youth.
The Workforce Development System is comprised of a statewide Governor's Workforce Development Council, a single state planning region, and numerous state and local employment and training organizations that work in partnership to bring services to Idaho students, job seekers and business customers. Customers can access the full range of WIA services through the Idaho Works Career Centers located in each of the six geographic regions of the state.
