NextGen, offered by Centralina Workforce
The Centralina Workforce Development Board is proud to introduce NEXTGEN Services (the next generation of services for youth and young adults in the region).
Under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) it outlines a broader youth vision that supports an integrated service delivery system and provides a framework through which states and local areas can leverage other Federal, state, local and philanthropic resources to support In-School Youth (ISY) and Out-of-School Youth (OSY). Notably, WIOA shifts the primary program focus of the youth formula programs to support the educational and career success of OSY.
