The Central Workforce Development Board Story

We believe keeping our workforce stays strong for years to come begins with a solid foundation. We aim to help youth become valuable and self-reliant members of the community by offering career readiness and skills training, as well as job search and placement services. We oversee a variety of programs that serve young people, including programs for out of school and out of work youth 16-24  offered through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), programs for area high school students through the School to Career Connecting Activities program funded by the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and the YouthWorks Summer jobs program funded by the Commonwealth of MA and coordinated statewide by the Commonwealth Corporation. In addition, our Career Center staff can provide tools to help youth stay competitive in the workforce and the insight and confidence they need to impress potential employers.


We offer programs to help connect youth with the help they need to prepare themselves for a successful future in the Massachusetts workforce. Learn more below.
