7120 California Workforce Development Board
Mission Statement

The California Workforce Development Board collaborates with both state and local partners to establish and continuously improve the state workforce system, with an emphasis on California's economic vitality and growth. The Board also provides leadership for a unified state plan that works in partnership with other state entities such as the Health and Human Services Agency, the Departments of Social Services and Rehabilitation, the Community Colleges, and the Department of Education. The workforce system is comprised of state and local programs and services that prepare current and future workers to meet the ever-evolving demands of California's businesses and industries. These services include matching job seekers with career opportunities and jobs; supplying high-skill workers to business and industry; providing labor market and economic information necessary for state, local, and regional planning; preparing the neediest youth for advanced learning and careers; and encouraging the inclusion of special populations as critical elements of the workforce.
