About Us

Workforce Development Board of Ventura County

The Workforce Development Board (WDB) administers the distribution of federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funds that help support America’s Job and Career Center locations in Ventura County and other Ventura County adult education, employer and youth programs. Through the effective use of WIOA funds and strong private and public-sector partnerships, WDB-supported programs offer quality workforce development resources at no cost to program participants. The WDB works to ensure that Ventura County has a strong, relevant workforce that can support the changing needs of employers and that adult job seekers have access to the resources necessary to receive education and achieve success.
