At the U.S. Department of Labor, we realize that summer youth employment is a critical element of success for young people. Our Division of Youth Services supports the workforce system to promote meaningful summer employment that helps young people develop workforce and leadership skills to get and keep good jobs, connects them to long term economic opportunity, and provides them the chance to establish good savings behavior. This webinar will highlight Young America Saves' First-Time Workers Pilot Project which promotes saving at work for young adults, ages 16 to 24, as one effort to increase overall workplace saving. Webinar participants will learn how the summer job orientation process can be an ideal opportunity to motivate newly-hired workers to make a savings commitment, sign up for direct deposit, and open a new or use an existing bank account to save automatically, with very positive benefits.

As part of the Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration’s Technical Assistance and Training (TAT) effort, an Effective Case Management Resource Map has been developed that features the top 27 resources out of a literature review and resource scan that generated over 100 resources on effective case management in the workforce system. These resources include a wide range of materials including reports, policy documents, webinars, and toolkits. The resources are mapped according to a model of effective case management that identifies key activities and competencies for case managers as well as a foundation of administrative-level system supports to ensure case managers have what they need to do their work. Specific resources that provide more detailed information and examples of state and local workforce system efforts can be easily accessed on-line through hyperlinks built into the map. This version represents a “beta” version of the Effective Case Management Resource Map that will be further developed and refined based on input from the system.
