The Riverside County Workforce Development Board (WDB) provides oversight for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) programs in the county. The WDB acts as a catalyst to provide seamless services among various workforce programs and provides community leadership around workforce issues.
There are five ways that we can carry out our role:
CONVENER - Bringing together business, labor, education, and economic development to focus on community workforce issues
WORKFORCE ANALYST - Developing, disseminating and understanding current labor market and economic information and trends
BROKER - Bring together systems to solve common problems, or broker new relationships with businesses and workers
COMMUNITY VOICE - Advocating for the importance of workforce policy, providing perspective about the need for skilled workers
CAPACITY BUILDER - Enhancing the region's ability to meet the workforce needs of local employers
We accomplish these tasks through America's Job Centers of California better known as the Riverside County Workforce Development Centers (WDCs). The WDCs are the hub of the county-wide service delivery vehicle for workforce, education and business services. WDCs are located in the cities of Riverside, Indio, Hemet and Murrieta; two satellite offices are located in Blythe and Moreno Valley; and six Youth Opportunity Centers (YOCs) are located in Indio, Perris, Lake Elsinore, Moreno Valley, Hemet, and Rubidoux. Workforce funds allocated to the WDB support job training, placement, and business services delivered at these locations.
