WIOA Youth Program

Bay Area Workforce Development Board (BAWDB), through cooperation with its partners, provides youth within our eleven counties an opportunity to participate in the WIOA Youth Program. The Program has many benefits. Participants gain valuable work experience, have access to career exploration opportunities, and gain resources for further academic development such as obtaining a GED/HSED, advanced training, and enrollment into post secondary education. They also learn about the resources that the community and the Job Centers, including the Brown County Job Center have to offer.
