16 HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION, INC. YOUTH TRANSITION DEMONSTRATION (YTD) WEST VIRGINIA YOUTH WORKS On November 15, 2007, HRDF was awarded a 3.85 million dollar implementation grant to participate in a Social Security Administration (SSA) Youth Transition Demonstration (YTD) Project. The program, known as West Virginia Youth Works, is now in the full implementation phase and is serving youth years old with disabilities in 19 counties throughout West Virginia (see West Virginia Youth Works Map on the following page). Youth enrolled in the program receive a variety of program services. The interventions are designed to increase the likelihood that participating youth will be employed as adults; and, to decrease their lifetime reliance on Social Security disability benefits. West Virginia Youth Works received 480 beneficiary referrals during the recruitment phase. As of June 30, 2011, the Youth Works program enrolled 404 participants, exceeding the proposed goal of 400. Customized Employment Specialists and Job Developer/Job Coaches met with participants and their families to assess their needs and assist in linking them with potential training, educational, and employment opportunities including: On-the-Job Training; Occupational Exploration and Training (OET); Job Shadowing; and, Direct Placement into unsubsidized paid employment. Of all youth enrolled in the program thus far, nearly 90 percent received a variety of case management and employment related services. The majority of the participants (72%) have received education-related services such as GED preparation, IEP transition meetings, and educational certificate attainment. Of the Youth Works participants who received employment related services, a total of 182 (or 45%) have been placed in a competitive job. The Youth Works Program anticipates achieving and exceeding the overall competitive employment goal of 47.1 percent by the end of the Youth Works Program in March West Virginia Youth Works Success Story Chris was a high school graduate who had enrolled in the YTD program in January, 2010, at age 24. Although he had never worked in competitive employment, he had some good work experiences to add to his resume. He had volunteered at the local Fire Department and helped his Father with grounds keeping at a neighboring farm. His tasks included mowing, planting, feeding livestock as well as some butchering. Chris work goal was to obtain employment at a fast food restaurant or at a business in which he could work as a grounds- keeper. A barrier to finding employment was that he lived with his family far out in the country, about 40 miles from the nearest town. Due to his seizure disorder and cognitive impairments, Chris was unable to acquire a driver s license. Chris was very eager to work and was willing to try any position available. YTD staff met with him often to drive him to the nearest town to help him obtain and complete many applications. The interviews for these jobs did not go well. Dale Verstegen, an advisor from Transcen, met with 14

17 Chris and his family at his home. After the meeting, Mr. Verstegen gave suggestions to YTD staff, to better enable them to help Chris with interviewing skills and other areas of his job search. YTD staff found that the Stonewall Resort, about ten miles from Chris home, was holding a Job Fair to hire employees to work in all capacities, for the upcoming season. The job developer met with Human Resources to set the stage for Chris attending the Job Fair. They were willing to talk to the supervisors to prepare them for some of Chris barriers. Through the assistance of the YTD program, interview clothing and shoes were purchased. In preparation for the Job Fair, staff assisted Chris with mock interviewing and suggested that he get a shave and a haircut. The interviews went well and Chris was hired on the spot, as part of the kitchen staff at the resort. He has done an excellent job in his position. Chris loves his work and has made many friends. His supervisor recently told YTD staff that Chris is a valued employee and the Stonewall Resort would like to have him continue to work for the upcoming season. In June, 2011, he was named Employee of the Month. His parents are applying for the PASS program in order for him to save for a car that will be used to transport Chris to and from work. He is now enrolled in the Ticket to Work Program through HRDF. 15

20 HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION, INC. Passport to Success (Ticket to Work Program) As part of the YTD Transitional Plan, HRDF was approved as an Employment Network (EN) agency to provide services under the Ticket to Work Program. The Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program, locally called Passport to Success, is an employment program for people with disabilities who are interested in going to work. The Ticket Program is part of the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of legislation designed it to remove many of the barriers that previously influenced a person s decision about going to work because of concerns over losing health care coverage. The goal of the Program is to increase opportunities and choices for Social Security disability beneficiaries to obtain employment, vocational rehabilitation (VR), and other support services from public and private providers, employers, and other organizations. Under the Ticket Program, the Social Security Administration (also referred to as the Agency) provides disability beneficiaries with a Ticket to obtain the services and jobs they need from a new universe of organizations called Employment Networks. The Ticket to Work Program provides most people receiving Social Security benefits (beneficiaries) more choices for receiving employment services. Under this program, SSA issues a ticket to eligible beneficiaries who, in turn, may choose to assign tickets to an EN of their choice to obtain employment services, vocational rehabilitation services, or other support services necessary to achieve a vocational (work) goal. The EN, if they accept the ticket, will coordinate and provide appropriate services to help the beneficiary find and maintain employment. Currently, Passport to Success has successfully assigned seven tickets. The program is submitting wages for three ticket holders and is assisting the rest of the ticket holders in achieving earnings at the level necessary to submit wages. There are several ticket applications that are being reviewed by staff and steps are being taken to assign these tickets. Various programs, within HRDF, are actively reviewing their caseloads in order to identify participants amongst programs that are eligible for ticket services and offering support to those with assignable tickets. 18

21 HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION, INC. PASSAGE TO SUCCESS PROGRAM In February 2011, HRDF was awarded $166,143 by the West Virginia Department of Rehabilitation Services (WVDRS) for the Passage to Success Program to provide transitional services to 100 high school youth with disabilities. The Passage to Success provides Community Rehabilitation Program (CRP) services to assist youth with disabilities a successful transition from school to work. These services target youth in the 12 th grade. It is envisioned that providing interventions and services earlier in school will enhance eventual employment outcomes. Primary project services are Community Based Assessment, Work Adjustment to assist with placement in competitive employment. The services are provided in a coordinated effort with WVDRS and WV Department of Education Staff throughout HRDF s Service Delivery Area (SDA), which includes WVDRS District 1, District 2, District 4, and District 5. Special emphasis is placed on providing CRP services to graduating seniors in Braxton, Logan and Clay Counties. Project goals will include, but not be limited to: Providing CRP Services for a minimum of 100 High School Seniors served by WVDRS; Improving current levels of High School Transitional Services; Increasing the numbers of youth with disabilities entering employment and/or post-secondary education; and, Developing a larger client base of WVDRS referrals for HRDF CRP Services to support sustainability. Success Story for Passage to Success Program Stephanie M. started working with the Passage to Success Program in March 2011, at nineteen years old and a senior in high school. Stephanie, unsure of her future goals, was assisted by HRDF in exploring options, and choosing a vocational goal. HRDF supported her through a Community Based Assessment. She was able to experience food prep, retail, and office work through this service. From the various environments she experienced, Stephanie decided to try retail or food prep in a slow paced setting. Stephanie is now working at Kmart in Teays Valley, with job coaching support. 19

22 HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION, INC. YOUTHBUILD PROGRAM Since 1995, HRDE has administered Youthbuild Programs in North Central West Virginia via funding through the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Youthbuild Program serves out-of-school, at-risk youth, age 17-24, who do not have a high school diploma. Currently, HRDF operates the Mon Youthbuild Program, serving Monongalia, Marion, and Harrison Counties. The Youthbuild Program offers a comprehensive curriculum to prepare young adults for GED, leadership skills, vocational training, and on-the-job pre-apprenticeship training in the construction industry. The classroom training segments, consisting of GED and Residential Building Technology, are located in the lower level of Eastview Unity Apartments in Fairmont. The actual hands-on training is a result of collaborative efforts with local agencies; such as, Harrison County Habitat for Humanity, Monongalia County Habitat for Humanity, North Central West Virginia Community Action, and Marion County Habitat for Humanity. Other collaborators are the Region 6 Workforce Investment Board and the West Virginia University Extension Services. Since 1995, when HRDE received two $90,000 Youthbuild Planning Grants, HRDE has applied for and received over $3,400,000 in HUD Implementation Grants. Youthbuild Program students, with guidance from instructors and staff, continue to rehabilitate apartment units and construct new housing for low-income persons throughout North Central West Virginia, as well as, earning their GED. In 2007, federal funding for the Youthbuild Grant was transferred from HUD to the U. S. Department of Labor (DOL). HRDF submitted a proposal for DOL funding in January 2009 and was awarded a $791,313 grant to operate the Youthbuild Program through June 30, 2011, and continue follow-up services through June 30, On April 26, 2011, HRDF was granted a No Cost Extension on this award, which extends the operation period to December 31, 2011; and, the follow-up period to December 31, The program responded to an RFP from DOL, in December of 2009, but was unsuccessful in attaining funding. The appropriations cuts for FY 2011 left only enough funding to fund one-third of the 226 existing Youthbuild programs. However, a new RFP is expected in January of 2012, and the program is hoping to reestablish funding through June of Meanwhile, the program continues to research and pursue other avenues of potential funding. During this current grant period, the program has been very successful. The students have built two homes and helped to finish a third home for three Habitat for Humanity organizations. They have remodeled four transitional living apartment units and two school bathroom facilities. Community service projects have included building a fenced playground for a local community center, restoration work on a historic fort, repairs to a local food bank, building shelter and storage facilities for a YMCA day camp, restoration work on buildings at the local Red Cross and the local Humane Society, and a myriad of emergency home repairs for low-income elderly individuals. 20

23 HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION, INC. YOUNG PARENTS DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM The Young Parents Demonstration Program initiative is designed to provide educational and occupational skills training that foster family economic self-sufficiency to young parents (both Mothers and Fathers) and expectant Mothers ages Funded projects are to serve young parents including, as applicable, those in high-risk categories such as victims of child abuse, children of incarcerated parents, court-involved youth, youth at risk of court involvement, homeless and runaway youth, Native American youth, migrant youth, youth in or aging out of foster care, and youth with disabilities. To ensure rigorous, valid results from the Young Parents Demonstration, grantees must employ an innovative random assignment technique called a bump-up experiment. A bump-up experiment is a random assignment experiment that provides an additional level of services above and beyond what services are currently provided to this population. Individuals participating in the program have a 50/50 chance of receiving this additional level of services. Those individuals assigned to the treatment, or bump-up group would get the additional services while individuals assigned to the control group would receive the existing services offered by the grantee. A key factor in a bump-up experimental research design is having a single, persistent intervention for the treatment group that is substantially different from what the control group receives. The effectiveness of the bump up compared to the regular existing services will be evaluated by the YDP national evaluator. The Urban Institute is designing the evaluation, working with each grantee to establish the appropriate random assignment procedures needed to produce valid and reliable estimates of the impact of the bump up on individual employment, earnings, educational results, and other outcomes. Technical assistance will be provided to the grantees related to carrying out the random assignment procedures and submitting necessary data to the evaluators by the Urban Institute. HRDF s four youth programs currently provide a full range of mandated services to WIA eligible youth, which will provide core services to youth randomly assigned for intervention services. The service delivery area for the YPD program will cover WIB Regions I, II, III and VI. Services Unique to the Bump-Up: On-the-Job Training Individual Training Accounts/Tuitions Goals of Bump-up Services: Effectively assist parenting youth with rapid attachment to workforce through intensified levels of case management, mentoring, and providing educational opportunities previously out of their reach. The Young Parents Demonstration Grant is in its last year. To date, the program has enrolled 170 youth, 83 control and 75 bump up.

32 PURPOSE HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT AND EMPLOYMENT, INC. STANLEY TECHNICAL INSTITUTE The goal of Stanley Technical Institute (STI) is to provide educational and skill development programs that will effectively improve the employability of those who attend. STI's objective is to select students who will benefit from vocational guidance and training. Applicants who meet these requirements and have the opportunity for participation in training must also be given the proper support to achieve training. It is necessary to provide learning experiences that explore objectives related to each student's career goal. Training objectives must be based upon the understanding that while the effectiveness of learning varies with learning ability; it is also affected by the approach a student takes to the learning activity. These learning activities should combine reading, observation, and self-directed or group participation in "hands-on application." Occupational Training is administered on an "open-ended, open-exit" training schedule. When "open-ended, open-exit" schedules are not possible, traditional fixed start and end date programs will be scheduled. Appraising an individual's progress by reviewing the needs of the individual while in training assures successful completion by perfection, achievement of performance standards, and overall feedback. Students are able to more effectively reach their goal of obtaining career skills and to become competitive in the job market and in their resulting careers. FUNDING SOURCE Individual Training Accounts as approved by the Workforce Investment Boards, Buy-Ins through Trade Adjustment Act (TAA) compensation, Division of Rehabilitation Services, various types of financial aid, and Private Pay. The Clarksburg and Parkersburg Stanley Technical Institutes are accredited through the North Central Association, Commission on Schools and HRDE is approved through the U.S. Department of Education for Title IV Financial Aid eligibility, which allows students to receive financial aid through Federal PELL Grants and Stafford Loans. PROGRAM OPERATION The West Virginia Higher Education Commission approves Stanley Technical Institute as a post-secondary school. Stanley Technical Institute is approved as a training provider for WIA funding in Workforce Investment Board Regions IV and VI. PROGRAM ACTIVITIES Occupational Skill Training through Stanley Technical Institute offers customers an opportunity to be trained in occupational and vocational areas that have proven to be in high demand. Program customers receive training at Stanley Technical Institute's two primary locations: Stanley Technical Institute (Clarksburg) - Located at 120 South Linden Avenue, Clarksburg, WV 26301, off the Joyce Street Exit of Route 50 in Clarksburg. Admission Office: (304) This facility houses the Residential and Industrial Building Technology class, Computer Operations & Application Technology class and evening Computer Operations & Application Technology class (as needed). Stanley Technical Institute (Parkersburg) - Located at 2826B Pike Street in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Take the Camden Avenue Exit from I-77, turn left on Rayon Drive, then left on Pike Street. Admission Office (304) This facility houses a Computer Operations and Application Technology class. 30
