The Department of Labor's (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) previously issued Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) 19-13 on the distinct roles of the DVOP specialist that limited the veterans and eligible populations who could be served by Disability Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) staff and given priority due to significant barriers to employment. At the same time, Training and EGL 19-13 The Secretary of Labor may identify additional groups of veterans who are entitled to receive intensive services from DVOP staff and this TEGL 20-13 is issued to establish veterans ages 18 to 24 as such a priority category.

In recent years, veterans ages 18 to 24 have experienced a higher rate of unemployment than other veterans as well as nonveterans of the same age. DOL anticipates an increase in the number of veterans 18 to 24 transitioning from active military service. This group of veterans may also possess limited civilian work history, which can make transitioning to the civilian labor force more difficult. Based on these facts, the Secretary has determined veterans between the ages of 18 and 24 may need and benefit from the intensive services provided by a DVOP specialist.
