Local Board

Mission Statement

Through the Customer-Centered, Data-Driven One Stop System, we prepare and provide a qualified workforce to local businesses and assist businesses to grow and prosper.

Vision Statement

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA) stipulates that each required partner will work collaboratively to provide a higher level of service quality through the delivery of education and workforce services in a “shared services model.” This approach will foster system partnerships that build and sustain a shared vision and strategy that promotes seamless delivery of services that benefit the Santa Cruz County community. This improved framework will enhance the development of a more informed, educated, and skilled workforce and the development of effective career pathway systems.
