The Idaho Department of Labor offices in Idaho
Falls, Rexburg and Salmon are actively recruiting youth for the Workforce
Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program. Grant money is available through
the WIOA program to help youth and young adults who are struggling in their
career due to a lack of education or job training.
The WIOA program provides qualifying young
adults with career guidance and financial assistance to help achieve their
educational and employment goals. Services are customized to meet the needs of each applicant and may
include job search assistance, work experience, apprenticeships or formal
training programs as well as a variety of other assistance.
To qualify, applicants must be 16 to 24 years
of age, eligible to work in the United States, an Idaho resident, not enrolled
in school and have a barrier to employment. This is a grant-based program and
funding is limited.
To apply for the program, contact a workforce consultant at any
Idaho Department of Labor office.
