Workforce Development Boards are public-private partnerships that are charged with planning, policy development, implementation, and oversight for workforce development programs and services in local workforce development areas. Private sector participation and leadership are essential for the success of our workforce development boards.

A Workforce Development Board works with business leaders, education organizations, local governments and community groups to make sure that education and training resources are used to meet the needs of local businesses.  Federal and state funds are administered locally which is key to the success of Workforce Development Boards.  Regional collaboration among boards is a wise investment of time and resources because employers draw employees from across the region, and employee will not hesitate to drive a distance for a great job.  Another reason for regional WDB collaboration is that it draws on the strengths that each partner can bring to the group.

Wokforce Development Boards also have oversight of service delivery centers in each county called JobLink Career Centers.
