Workforce Investment Works
Workforce Investment Boards have transformed over the years and their recent focus has remained constant — create workforce talent in America to keep our nation competitive. Each Board has a majority of business champions who work collaboratively with public sector organizations to build workforce strategies in their local communities. Approximately 12,000 business volunteers serve on the nation's Workforce Boards, with the average local Board consisting of approximately 45 total members.
The strategies and vision of the Workforce Investment Boards are carried out through a network of American Job Centers which offer businesses, job seekers and youth with innovative employment and training services. Workforce Investment Boards across the country focus on keeping these resources market-driven; accessible to any individual who wants or needs a job, education, or training; and finding and training the right workforce talent for employers.
