The Workforce Development Board of Contra Costa County works with other agencies and organizations to advance workforce development in Contra Costa County and the East Bay region. Together, we provide jobseekers with upward economic mobility and security through our services and initiatives, preparing them for high-paying, in-demand jobs, while developing a workforce that meets the needs of business, allowing them to grow and thrive.
Ultimately, our collaborative efforts give Contra Costa an economic competitiveness that helps make lives better for everyone in our region – businesses and workers alike.
