This month, many of the provisions of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, or WIOA, took effect. To provide online technical assistance and training to those of you working to help youth and adults gain job skills and access to the workforce, the government has rolled out the Innovation Opportunity Network, or ION. This online learning and teaching community is a partnership of programs and services, designed to help you, your organization, and your partners connect with peers who are working to implement WIOA.

Here are some things you can do:

-Watch the Youth Service Strategies video.

-Visit ION.

-Read about the joint efforts of the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and Education to put WIOA's provisions in place.
