Adult Services encompass workforce investment programs and initiatives that provide millions of adult workers with workforce preparation and talent development services, and help employers find the skilled workers they need. Activities promote and facilitate an integrated public workforce system through which a full array of services is offered. These services are available to workers and employers through the national network of One-Stop Career Centers.
Programs advance talent development through a demand-driven system that addresses the needs of skilled workers as well as those in need of training. ETA investments in adult services are aligned with the Workforce Innovation through Regional Economic Development (WIRED) framework and with workforce preparation that includes post-secondary education with industry-recognized credentials in high growth industries.
