Breaking News: President Obama Signs WIOA

Today, President Obama signed into law the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, a $3 billion-a-year jobs bill that will prepare American workers, especially young adults, for today’s jobs.

This bipartisan, bicameral legislation received overwhelming support in both the House and Senate. In a political system beset by gridlock, WIOA stands as one of the biggest accomplishments of the 113th Congress.

Now it’s time to see the impact of this reauthorized jobs bill in the real world, especially for youth.

Read how WIA dollars have helped an innovative youth program in Cambridge, MA, The Work Force, to better serve teens and young adults, particularly those who are at risk for dropping out of high school.
