WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) Youth Programs and Services
Eligible youth, ages 16 to 24, can access a variety of career and educational services through WIOA funded programs. These services are designed to help enhance job skills, develop leadership qualities, explore career options, participate in adult and peer mentoring opportunities, and take advantage of work experiences.
Youth program providers, as listed below, meet specific criteria and requirements in order to receive allocated funds for these youth services. Direction and oversight for the funding allocations is provided by the San Bernardino County Workforce Development Board.
Youth Reinvestment Grant Program (YRG)
The YRG grant program is aimed at diverting youth from initial or subsequent contact with the juvenile justice system using approaches that are evidence-based, culturally relevant, trauma-informed, and developmentally appropriate. Grant funds will be used to target underserved communities. Grantees include local government agencies and community-based organizations. Local government agencies must pass through 90 percent of awarded funds to community-based organizations who will deliver diversion services. All grantees must provide diversion and alternative-sanction programs, academic- and vocational-education services, mentoring, behavioral health services, and/or mental health services.
Violence Intervention Prevention Program (VIP)
The State Legislature established the CalVIP Grant Program in 2017 to replace the California Gang Reduction, Intervention and Prevention grant program that began in 2007. CalVIP provides funding for cities and community-based organizations with the goal of reducing violence in the city and adjacent areas.
In October 2019 Governor Newsom signed the Break the Cycle of Violence Act (AB 1603). AB 1603 codified the establishment of CalVIP and defined its purpose: to improve public health and safety by supporting effective violence reduction initiatives in communities that are disproportionately impacted by violence, particularly group-member involved homicides, shootings, and aggravated assaults.
The Break the Cycle of Violence act specifies that CalVIP grants shall be used to support, expand and replicate evidence-based violence reduction initiatives, including but not limited to:
- Hospital-based violence intervention programs,
- Evidence-based street outreach programs, and
- Focused deterrence strategies.
These initiatives should seek to interrupt cycles of violence and retaliation in order to reduce the incidence of homicides, shootings, and aggravated assaults and shall be primarily focused on providing violence intervention services to the small segment of the population that is identified as having the highest risk of perpetrating or being victimized by violence in the near future.
Project Safe Neighorhoods Initiative (PSN)
The Department of Justice (DOJ) Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) program is a nationwide initiative that brings together federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement officials, prosecutors, community-based partners, and other stakeholders to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in a community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them.
PSN is coordinated by the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices (USAOs) in the 94 federal judicial districts throughout the 50 states and U.S. territories. PSN is customized to account for local violent crime problems and resources. An important aspect of PSN is to incorporate research and analysis to inform the decision-making process on the most effective violence reduction strategies.
