    Workforce Investment Act sessions to take place in January and February

    Informational sessions designed to introduce job seekers to the Workforce Investment Act will be conducted by the Loudoun County Workforce Resource Center at 102 Heritage Way N.E. in Leesburg on Jan. 21 and Feb. 18 at 2:30 p.m.

    The Loudoun Workforce Resource Center will explain the eligibility requirements for the program, help job seekers through the process of using the program and give an overview of Workforce Investment Act resources.

    "The WIA is a federal program that helps job seekers access the tools they need to manage their careers through information and high-quality services, and helps businesses find skilled workers," according to a prepared statement for the Workforce Resource Center.

    In 1998, the Workforce Investment Act was passed in order "to consolidate, coordinate, and improve employment, training, literacy and vocational rehabilitation programs in the United States."

    Signed into law in the second term of the Clinton administration, the act is intended to bring business leaders into the process of helping job seekers find employment.

    "Adults, youth and dislocated workers receiving WIA services have higher earnings than non-participants three years following participation," according to a study conducted by the Washington State Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board.

    For more information call Shelly Rodriguez at 703-737-8081 or go online to http://loudoun.gov/wrc.
