Youth Advisory Council
6 Youth Advisory Council provides guidance for, and exercises oversight of, local youth programs operated under the Workforce Investment Act. In addition, the
council provides expertise in youth policy and assists the Regional Workforce Investment Board (RWIB) in:
1. Developing and recommending local youth employment and training policy and practice;
2. Broadening the youth employment and training focus in the community to incorporate a youth development perspective;
3. Establishing linkages with other organizations serving youth in the local area; and
4. Taking into account a range of issues that can have an impact on the success of youth in the labor market.
Members of the Youth Advisory Council serve two-year terms, and represent persons with special interest in youth policy, youth service agencies such as juvenile justice and law enforcement, public housing, parents,
Workforce Investment Act (WIA) participants, and the Regional Workforce
Investment Board (RWIB).
