DACA Recipients Can Participate in Workforce Investment and Wagner-Peyser Act Programs

DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals)  recipients with work authorization can participate in the workforce training programs provided under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). These programs can include Job Corps, National Farmworkers Job Program, and the Wagner-Peyser Act which helps match workers to jobs and vice-versa. These are great opportunities that will help the economy and help DACA individuals obtain better integration into the US work environment. DACA recipients are asked to seek further information at the USCIS page for deferred action (Spanish), and  the USCIS page for avoiding scams (Spanish).
