Developing Effective Linkages between Job Corps and One-Stop Systems: A Technical Assistance Guide.
Dickinson, Katherine; Soukamneuth, Sengsouvanh
This document is intended to help Job Corps centers and Office of Acquisition Policy contractors establish linkages with one-stop systems. Chapter 1 summarizes the requirements for linkages between Job Corps and one-stop systems that are specified in the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998 and compares one-stop delivery systems before and under the WIA. Chapters 2-5 detail the challenges entailed in establishing four types of linkages and strategies for overcoming them. The linkages and challenges discussed are as follows: (1) organizational linkages (developing an effective memorandum of understanding; coordinating the governance of one-stop and Job Corps systems; linking the operations of the one-stop and Job Corps systems; developing staff capacity to carry out effective linkages); (2) recruitment and referral linkages (developing effective joint marketing procedures with one-stop systems; developing effective referral procedures; reducing competition for youth customers); (3) coordinated service linkages (linking Job Corps participants to one-stop training to enhance Job Corps training; ensuring access to additional supportive services); and (4) placement linkages (helping Job Corps youth access one-stop core placement services; encouraging them to use one-stop intensive services; linking them to additional training programs through one-stop; encouraging them to use one-stop postplacement services; reducing competition between Job Corps and one-stop partners for job openings).
