Workforce Transition Services

Workforce Transitions Services serves adults, dislocated workers, and youth by offering career and training services through funding provided by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). WIOA Adult and Dislocated Worker and WIOA Youth programming is funded through the Kane County Office of Community Reinvestment, Workforce Development Division and the local Workforce Development Area 5.

Services for participants in the programs include:

  • Office technology for career exploration and job search. This includes computers with Internet access, printers, fax machines, telephones, and accessibility equipment for individuals with physical, visual and hearing impairments.
  • Career planning for employment and training and community referrals.
  • Financial assistance of up to $10,000 for suitable and elibile students enrolled in a high demand occupation.
  • Weekly workshops to develop job search skills, basic computer literacy, assistance with resume and cover letter writing.

For both job seekers and businesses, the DeKalb Workforce Development Office provides valuable resources.

WIOA offers out-of-school youth an opportunity to participate in training that will assist in obtaining employment through selected short term programs.
