Current Narrative:

The Division does not currently have any agreements with non-educational agencies serving out-of-school youth.

When indicated, IDVR will engage in a co-enrollment strategy with other WIOA Plan partners, to provide general VR services and disability related supports.

Out-of-school youth (youth age 14-24 not enrolled in a secondary program) are encouraged to complete their high school education or pursue a formal or self-study GED program whenever possible to increase their options and access to postsecondary opportunities.  This includes referral to Idaho Career & Technical Education’s Adult Education program (available to those over the age of 16).  Idaho Job Corps maintains a partnership with the College of Western Idaho to offer a path to a high school diploma or GED for those age 16-24. 

The WIOA Youth program under the Idaho Department of Labor focuses on education, training and employment opportunities for out-of-school youth.  WIOA Youth provides an array of services to qualifying youth including dropout recovery services, paid and unpaid work experiences, occupational skill training, leadership development opportunities, facilitation of employer connections, interviewing skills, and mentoring. 

Idaho Job Corps offers qualifying youth extensive support for up to two years depending on individualized need.  This includes career exploration and education assistance.

Idaho’s Disability Employment Initiative grants and the formal agreement IDVR had with the Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections have ended or are near completion.  Regardless of the presence of formal agreements, these past projects have resulted in better knowledge of IDVR services and staff.  Referrals to IDVR from IDJC for example continue to be strong.

Numerous regional partnerships take advantage of local resources or serve as referral sources to IDVR to engage out-of-school youth.  These resources differ by location with a common theme of providing a mechanism of outreach for out-of-school youth
