Welcome to the Workforce Investment Board!

The Napa-Lake Workforce Investment Board (NLWIB) is responsible for overseeing public workforce development activities in Napa and Lake Counties in accordance with the Federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA). This includes overseeing the operation of a network of business and career centers as well as other programs and services designed to help meet the job and workforce needs of our area.

The NLWIB understands that economic vitality is characterized by an abundance of well-paying jobs and that the availability of a skilled workforce will help assure economic success for our businesses and our workers. To achieve its objectives, the NLWIB focuses on the integration of effective employment, training, education, and business services for job seekers, workers and employers.

At the center of our 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 offer a wealth of training and employment resources to assist both businesses and job seekers (see QUICK LINKS).

Whether you are a job seeker, employer, or labor market intermediary, we encourage you to download our new Occupational Outlook Report, which includes comprehensive labor market information for the North Bay Region including profiles of the top middle-skill occupations. It's a 2-volume PDF report that can be downloaded from the homepage of this website (see the sidebar on the left) or from Reports & Presentations (see the horizontal menu bar).

We also encourage you to use our Directory of Postsecondary Education & Training Providers. This is an online directory of education/training providers with information on both their services and their certificate and degree training programs. The directory can be easily accessed from this website's menu bar.
