Welcome to the website of the Napa-Lake Workforce Investment Board! The purpose of our site is to share information about the Workforce Investment Board and its programs, services and resources, and to provide important information about our economy and labor market.
In partnership with the Board of Supervisors in both counties, the Workforce Investment Board oversees local workforce development activities and establishes programs and services in response to the workforce needs of our area. Our programs and services are designed to serve employers, employees, job seekers and youth in accordance with a 5 Year Strategic Plan. The plan describes the Workforce Investment Board's commitment to establishing a comprehensive, demand-driven workforce development system to serve both employers and job seekers.
The center of our local workforce development system in Napa County is our Business & Career Center which is operated by WorkforceNapa, a consortium of local service providers. This important community resource offers a wealth of training and employment resources, and labor market information, to assist both job seekers and businesses. Through First Source Hiring, employers have services available at little or no cost.
