The Lehigh Valley Workforce Investment Board Youth Development program is overseen by the Lehigh Valley Workforce Development Board and its Youth Council. In general, the youth programs are designed to offer the neediest youth with opportunities to successfully transition to adult roles and responsibilities. The emphasis has been on teaching academic and employability skills to youth who might otherwise not have an opportunity to succeed academically or vocationally. The youth service providers work with various agencies to recruit the neediest youth who may be out-of-school, homeless, aging out of foster care, offenders, disabled, and other at-risk youth. The Youth Workforce Development Council has a proactive vision of creating a seamless system that ensures all youth transition successfully from school to advanced training to work.
