Local Boards are responsible for the oversight of youth programs. WIOA encourages Local Boards to establish, “a standing committee to provide information and to assist with planning, operation, and other issues relating to the provision of services to youth, which shall include community-based organizations with a demonstrated record of success in serving eligible youth.” The Lower Shore Workforce Development Board (WDB) has elected to create a Youth Committee as recommended in WIOA.
Youth Committee: oversees youth programs and sets forth the compilation of its duties. Serves as architects in designing and building comprehensive youth services at the local level, identifies gaps in services and develops a strategy to use competitive selections or community partnerships to address unmet needs of youth, coordinates youth policies, ensures quality services, leverages financial and programmatic resources, recommends eligible youth services providers and prepares and discusses planning for the Youth Advisory Committee meetings. Youth Committee meetings are held monthly, except for March, June, September and December. Upcoming meeting dates are subject to change. Meetings are held at the American Job Center in Salisbury, MD from 1:00 to 2:30 PM.
