“LRS continues to collaborate with LWC in identifying effective ways to integrate services in BCSCs [Business and Career Solution Centers]. LRS is represented on each of the LWIBs and attends meetings as scheduled. The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) established with each of the WIBs is updated annually. Within the 18 WIAs, 63 BCSCs have been established, 18 cost allocation plans have been completed by the WIBs and approved by all parties. LRS continues to pay expenses to the local centers for participation, as per the local cost allocation plans.”

LWC is working with the Shared Youth Vision workgroup on youth, local workforce boards, youth councils, and community-based organizations to continue development of the systems needed to provide these comprehensive services to eligible youth, including coordination with Job Corps and other youth programs within each local workforce investment area. Vocational rehabilitation is involved in the development of these service strategies to ensure that youth with disabilities or other barriers to employment are included in the comprehensive service strategy.
