Welcome!



Through regional collaborative efforts, the Workforce Development Board (WDB) of Humboldt County brings together community members from the private sector, local government, non-profits, labor unions, education, and public agencies to:

  • Catalyze

     leadership to collaborate and focus attention on Target industry needs, particularly preparing a skilled workforce for successful careers in those Target industries.
  • Demonstrate

     and articulate the career pathways of demand occupations in the Target industries to youth and adults. Increase the number of high school students who graduate prepared for post-secondary vocational training, further education and/or a career with advancement opportunities in the Target industries. Focus on at-risk youth and those from low income communities. Enroll 90% of adults in training that leads to employment in demand occupations in the Target industries.
  • Support 

    system alignments, service integration, and continuous improvement in the utilization of Target industry data for evidence-based strategic planning, policy-making, and deployment of resources within the greater workforce system, as well as guidance for youth and adult job seekers and employers.
Our Mission Statement: 


Bringing together resources that meet employer and employee needs, to advance the prosperity of our communities.
