Note: Any participants who lose their authorization to work in the United States become ineligible for the WIOA Youth Program as of the date the authorization was lost.
Note: Almost all male U.S. citizens and immigrants are required to register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. If an individual turns 18 while participating in the Youth Program, he must register with Selective Service no later than 30 days after his 18th birthday. If he fails to register during that period, he may not continue to participate in the Youth Program. Males between the ages of 18 and 24 who have not registered with Selective Service can become eligible for the WIOA Youth Program by registering at www.sss.gov.4
satisfy the requirements for at least one of the following nine eligibility barriers:
2WIOA Sec. 188(a)(5); 20 CFR § 683.285(a)(5); TEGL 02-14, p. 2 Career planners must keep expiration dates of work authorization documents in mind when scheduling services. If a participant's authorization to work in the U.S. will expire before the planned close date for a service, the participant should renew his or her work authorization before beginning the service. If that is not possible, services must be scheduled so that they can be completed before the work authorization expires.
Individuals eligible to work in the U.S. include (WIOA Sec. 188(a)(5); 20 CR §683.285(5)):
citizens and nationals of the United States;
lawfully admitted permanent resident aliens, refugees and asylees (who are authorized to work in the U.S.
because of their refugee or asylee status); and
other immigrants authorized by the Secretary of Homeland Security or the secretary's designee to work in the U.S. This includes immigrants covered by Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) who have applied for and received work authorization (TEGL 02-14, p. 2).
