  • The use of statewide activities funds; and
  • Innovative transitional strategies.
The national policy perspective will be represented thru moderateor Evan Rosenberg from the Department of Labor’s Division of Youth Services and presenter Mike Qualter of the Division of Adult Services. Together with TATC’s national subject-matter expert Anne Adams, best practices in transitioning older out-of-school youth ages 18-24 will be addressed. Local area perspectives will be represented through San Bernadino County Workforce Investment Board, the San Diego Workforce Partnership, and the Central Ohio Workforce Investment Corporation who will discuss their related new initiatives, the utilization of “youth program navigators”, and shared effective program models on connecting older youth to long-term employment, education, or occupational skills training.
