Education & Training Assistance

Receive education, training, and support services to help you succeed in the labor market through the WIOA Adult & Dislocated Worker Program and the WIOA Youth Program.

Now is the perfect time to pursue your education. The links below are a quick and easy way to explore adult basic education programs in the Central Region!

As a youth or young adult (16-24), you can receive no-cost education and career technical training through the U.S. Department of Labor’s Job Corps.

To help low-income, unemployed individuals aged 55+ find work, the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) matches eligible older adults with part-time training assignments for non-profit organizations. Participants build skills and self-confidence, while earning a modest income. For most, their SCSEP experience leads to permanent employment.
