WIA YOUTH PROGRAM

Case Management


Case management l.jpg

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. Sometimes there is a person everyone can point at & say, “That is Marsha’s case manager & he/she meets with Marsha on a regular basis”. In most cases, case management activities are distributed across programs & staff.
