Workforce Investment Board

The Workforce Investment Board was formed with the passage of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998. It is responsible for implementing the plans of the Workforce Investment Board and the Board of Supervisors.

The Workforce Investment Board consists of members of the private sector and government, working in harmony to provide training for individuals who presently face barriers to employment. Our goal is to provide employees, training programs, and hiring incentives to area employers.

The San Benito County Workforce Investment Board strives to remove employment barriers through our training programs. Our participants attain greater economic and personal self-sufficiency, while satisfying local labor market needs.

The Workforce Investment Board does not provide direct training services. It contracts with private and public vocational organizations throughout the area to carry out training. The contractors must meet our training and job placement goals to fulfill their contracts and to be paid.

All meetings are open to the public. The full WIB meets quarterly (Jan, Apr, Jul, Oct) the Executive Committee meets on all months inbetween.
