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 Napa County Board of Supervisors, the Workforce Investment Board oversees local workforce development activities and establishes programs and services in response to the workforce needs of our Napa and Lake County area. Our programs and services are designed to serve employers, employees, job seekers and youth in accordance with a 5 Year Strategic Plan. Our Strategic Plan describes the Workforce Investment Board's commitment to establishing a comprehensive, demand-driven workforce development system to serve both employers and job seekers.

At the center of our local workforce development system is our Business & Career Centers which are operated by WorkforceNapa and WorkforceLake, both consortiums of local service providers. Along with our youth program service providers, these important community resources offers a wealth of training and employment resources to assist both job seekers and businesses. Through First Source Hiring, employers can have a variety of services provided at little or no cost. And there is never a cost to job seekers.

We are a proud to be part of:
