  1. WIA YOUTH PROGRAM Case Management

  2. Case Management • Case management is a youth-centered, goal-oriented process for assessing needs of youth for particular services to meet educational & employment goals & assisting youth in obtaining those services. There is no single model to organize case management for a youth development system.

In most cases, case management activities are distributed across programs & staff.
