North Carolina: Youth Employment
The Durham Workforce Development Board (DWDB) is requesting proposals from organizations interested in operating as the Framework Service Provider for the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title I-B youth program.
Programs must be dedicated to improving the quality of the emerging workforce by ensuring eligible youth have the opportunity to acquire the educational and skill competencies necessary for successful transition into adulthood, careers, and further education and training.
The program is intended to be a component of a customer-driven youth development system that makes accountability for performance and customer satisfaction a top priority. Furthermore, the program provider will be responsible for expanding linkages and collaborative efforts that foster a comprehensive system of services to meet the workforce development needs of eligible youth in Durham.
The provider of the framework component of the program will be responsible for outreach, intake, assessment, and
referral of the youth to an appropriate program service provider.
The provider will also be responsible for providing supportive services and 12 months of follow-up services after program completion.
