There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

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.
