Adult Services

An adult worker is an individual who:

  • Is 18+ years old
  • Is authorized to work in the United States
  • Resides in Monmouth County
  • Is unemployed, under-employed or in need of a skills upgrade

MCDWD may provide adult workers with intensive services, training services (when appropriate), and related supportive services. When WIOA adult worker customers are unsuccessful in acquiring or retaining self-sufficient unsubsidized employment through core services, more intensive services are made available.

The intensive services may include the following:

  • Group counseling (when applicable);
  • Continual individualized counseling and career planning assistance;
  • Continual or on-going assessment of the WIOA customer’s capabilities and potential for obtaining his/her self-sufficient unsubsidized employment goals and need for supportive services;
  • Short-term pre-vocational services, including, but not limited to, development of learning skills, communication skills, interviewing skills, punctuality, personal maintenance skills, and professional conduct, to prepare the individual(s) for self-sufficient unsubsidized employment or training services.
  • On-the-Job Training (OJT) activities allow eligible participants who are otherwise, “job ready,” to learn skills for specific occupations by demonstration and practice under actual working conditions in a business. Training occurs while the participant is engaged in productive, full-time work as a newly-hired employee.
