The implementation team with the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is seeking input from partners via a survey located here on what to consider as the state’s WIOA plan is developed. Should take 1-3 minutes. Public libraries and community colleges are potential partners because of resources, programming, and training provided to job seekers or adult learners.
See this webinar for details on WIOA and libraries. One area to consider reinforcing in the survey comments is if WIOA funds to the state could be applied to a statewide license for things like Learning Express, or similar tools that could be made available to all libraries and residents to assist with career and job training.
