Local Workforce Development Boards Celebrate Workforce Week

New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has declared the week of September 23rd as “Workforce Development Awareness Week.”

Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDB) and partner agencies are highlighting their programs and holding events to bring awareness of the services available to strengthen the workforce and help workers prepare for and achieve meaningful careers — including dislocated workers, youth, workers with a disability, workers affected by the opioid crisis, ex-offenders, underserved populations and others.

Serving as connectors between the U.S. Department of Labor and local American Job Centers that deliver services to workers and businesses, LWDBs maintain strong connections with local government officials and local education partners and agencies, and are in touch with the needs of local businesses and industries.

Along with providing assistance to job seekers, local American Job Center offices can provide a wide range of support to area businesses, acting as an extension of their human resources department to help maintain their workforce and enhance their business.
