WIATL 8 (WIA Youth Measures)
Workforce Investment Act Transmittal Letter No. 8
December 5, 2003
TO: Local Elected Officials and WIA Administrative Entities
FROM: Thomas J. Hayes, Director
SUBJECT: WIA Youth Performance Measures

Attached is a WIA Guidance Letter regarding WIA Youth Performance Measures. The purpose of the Guidance Letter is to help workforce investment boards and WIA administrative entities better understand youth performance measures. Local programs should be a product of well-designed and well-implemented systems, responsive to local needs and both building on and expanding local opportunities. This letter should be viewed as technical assistance so that local areas can plan programmatic interventions that produce quality results, meet the US Department of Labor WIA performance measure outcome requirements, and satisfy our youth customers.
