Research and Sponsored Programs

East Tennessee State University

The goals of the WIA program are for youth to: 1) graduate from high school and 2) go on to post-secondary education or vocational training or to obtain full-time employment. New WIA participants will undergo a series of assessments. Information garnered from the assessments is used to create an Individual Service Strategy (ISS) which will outline an appropriate combination of services. Based on the initial assessment, youth who are basic skills deficient will participate in tutoring and study skills training until they read, write and compute math at or above an eighth grade level.
