Workforce Investment ACT Program(WIOA) - SELACO
Based on the realities of today’s global economy, WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) is a framework for creating a world-class workforce development system that depends on (1) private sector involvement in and use of the system and (2) collaboration among the various agencies and partners who must work together toward the common goal of helping students find employment. Importantly, WIOA is committed to serving youth.
ABCUSD’s WIOA Program is a work experience/employment program in which students engage in learning through practical work site experience. Work Experience has a strong coordination and integration of worksite and classroom learning:
- Students observe the world of work and develop needed career specific skills.
- Students are provided with experience targeted and related to their career field.
- Students learn work site terminology and work environment with business and industry protocol.
