The mission of the North Central Wisconsin Workforce Development Board (NCWWDB) is to cultivate a skilled and competitive workforce which meets the demands of employers in the region.
Created by the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, (WIOA) workforce development boards oversee the design and delivery of locally customized job training programs and workforce development initiatives. NCWWDB is one of
eleven Boards in Wisconsin. A majority of Board members, as well as the Board Chairman, are representatives from the private sector. Other Board members represent education, labor, and community-based organizations. NCWWDB serves
nine counties: Adams, Forest, Langlade, Lincoln, Oneida, Marathon, Portage, Vilas, and Wood.
NCWWDB is uniquely structured to guide workforce development in the region by:
• Engaging and connecting local employers, educators, and community organizations to more effectively align workforce resources;
• Identifying, obtaining, and directing resources toward skilling, re-skilling, and building a future pipeline of workers to meet regional demands;
• Identifying and disseminating regional labor market data and trends which impact short-term and long-term development of a skilled labor pool;
• Overseeing publicly-funded WIOA programs and the One-Stop Job Centers in the region.
