Youth Services
Comprehensive Case Management and Employment Program (CCMEP)
Young people need the skills, training and education to establish and follow their dreams. We are here to help them! In Ohio, youth services are provided under the umbrella of the Comprehensive Case Management and Employment Program (CCMEP) that includes both the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity (WIOA) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) youth programs.

The CCMEP program provides year-round employment, academic, and training services to youth between the ages of 14 and 24. Ohio Means Jobs – Allen County assist youth with barriers to employment by providing resources and support to overcome those barriers and successfully transition to self-sufficient adulthood.
