ETA Announces Availability of "First Step: A Youth Practitioner’s Resource Guide to Supportive Services"
Apr 22, 2013

The Employment and Training Administration has issued Training and Employment Notice 31-12. This TEN announces the release and availability of First Step: A Youth Practitioner's Resource Guide to Supportive Services.

The TEN notes, in part:

(The Guide) provides youth practitioners with the information needed to connect youth to supportive services their employing organizations may not offer. The Guide provides quick and easy access to programs and services at the state or local level and helps program staff identify potential partnerships that can maximize services to youth. Youth workforce development practitioners typically are aware of and have access to numerous educational and employment resources, such as those related to GED attainment, financial aid, summer employment, and educational and occupational skills training.

The Guide provides descriptions and contact information for the following types of supportive services resources: general assistance; health, mental health and substance abuse; homelessness; violence and abuse; legal aid; disabilities; transportation; child support; mentoring; volunteer opportunities; financial literacy; cash assistance; child care; foster care; and juvenile justice.
