The Workforce Development Board of Ventura County is part of the Public Workforce System, a network of federal, state, and local offices that support economic expansion and develop the talent of the nation’s workforce.
The WDBVC serves as a connector between the U.S. Department of Labor and the America’s Job Center of California that deliver services to workers and employers. The WDBVCs’ role is to develop regional strategic plans and set funding priorities for Ventura County.
As one of our many functions, the WDBVC facilitates partnerships between local businesses with similar training needs. The WDBVC also relies on labor market information to develop sector strategies that focus resources on a particular high-growth industry for Ventura County.
