Map and Directions

In 2009, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) made an unprecedented investment in our nation's public workforce system to yield a more vitalized and innovative system capable of helping enable future economic growth and advancing shared prosperity for all Americans.  From the ARRA investment, $1.2 billion was made available for WIA Youth activities with a focus on summer youth employment opportunities and an emphasis on "green" educational and career pathways.

To meet the needs of the public workforce system, the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration's Division of Youth Services has been providing "quick response" support and technical assistance to states and local areas facing challenges with the implementation of Recovery Act support through on-site coaching, video and teleconferencing, facilitation of partnerships and peer-to-peer sharing opportunities, and development of service delivery strategies.

The Recovering America's Youth Summit will share the findings and lessons learned from ETA's involvement with the summer employment programs and focus on building the capacity of state and local areas to serve older out-of-school youth, ages 18-24, in year-round activities.  In addition, the Summit will discuss the integration of strategies to develop training and employment opportunities for youth in emerging industries.
