About the Workforce Development Board

Mission Statement

Create opportunities for success by connecting businesses to a quality workforce


To effectively connect a world-class workforce that meets the needs and exceeds the expectations of our partners in the Adams County Business Community

The Workforce Development Board (WDB) is composed of community leaders dedicated to workforce development. The members of the Adams County WDB are representatives of private industry, nonprofits, and public agencies. The Workforce Development Board is mandated by federal legislation to oversee public investments in employment and training programs. This responsibility is accomplished through the activities of the Adams County Workforce and Business Center.
