The upcoming reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act creates an opportunity to advance our goal of helping low income, low skilled young adults, as well as unemployed or underemployed adults, find routes to family supporting jobs with career paths by providing them with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in a knowledge-based economy.
