SER WIA Participant, Sergio Olivas Meets President Obama!
On Tuesday, July 22, 2014, President Obama signed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act , by far the most significant reform of federal job training programs in more than 15 years and a critical step toward helping workers and employers succeed in the 21st century economy.
WIOA strengthens the public workforce system and the partnerships that sustain it, by unifying and streamlining services to better serve job-seekers. It will improve accountability and transparency within the system. It will elevate work-based learning strategies like Registered Apprenticeship and sector strategies that address the needs of multiple employers within an industry. It will foster coordinated planning within economic regions. And it addresses the needs of veterans and of other populations facing unique economic challenges, including out-of-school youth, people with disabilities and the long-term unemployed.
Sergio can be seen directly behind President Obama wearing a white shirt and black tie. We are very proud of Sergio!learn more »
