Youth Council

Youth Council Members

The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 requires the local WIB form a subgroup to assist the larger Board with workforce issues related to youth. WIB members in cooperation with the Chief Local Elected Official must appoint the Youth Council. The Youth Council is advisory to the WIB. The Youth Council provides a forum for the discussion and review of youth program models and problems encountered.

  • Develop the portions of the local WIA Title I-B Plan relating to eligible youth, as determined by the Council Chairperson. Ensure that parents, participants, and other interested community members are involved in the design and implementation of these programs
  • Subject to the approval of the WIB:
    • a) Recommend eligible providers of youth activities to be awarded grants or contracts on a competitive basis by the local WIB to carry out the youth activities.
    • b) Conduct oversight with respect to the providers of youth activities in the local area.
  • Coordinate WIA Title I-B youth activities in the area.
  • Other duties determined to be appropriate by the WIB chairperson, such as establishing linkages with educational agencies and other youth entities.
