Bay Area WDB is a 45 member board with representation from business leaders, educators, economic development, and community programs with three major goals:
- Development of regional strategies to match workers skills with employer needs.
- Provision of training services to dislocated workers, unskilled adults, and at-risk youth.

Job Centers are the heart of the service delivery system providing employment search assistance, career counseling, computer literacy, labor market information, and business services.
