ETA to Host Youth Forum in Atlanta (June 17-19)
May 12, 2014
The Employment and Training Administration will conduct a Youth Forum in Atlanta, Georgia on
June 17 - 19. With the support and collaboration of states, local workforce investment areas, and discretionary grantees, this Forum is designed to promote and share best strategies to assist the hard-to-serve, and disconnected youth to help them gain the skills that are necessary for them to successfully participate in job-driven training programs. The Forum will focus on proven strategies from regional and national practitioners for serving disconnected youth, removing barriers, and creating career pathways to help them transition to adulthood.
State-level youth coordinators, local workforce investment area staff serving youth, youth council members and staff, youth service providers (including private non-profit and for-profit providers), community-based organizations, Reintegration of Ex-Offender grantees (RExO), and other youth service staff and entities are encouraged to attend.
