It is the charge of the Workforce Investment Board to develop and sustain a unified, cost effective workforce system that facilitates economic development and business growth.
 
Our regional economy has been through a most difficult time. The Buffalo and Erie County Workforce System continues to provide outstanding leadership in the delivery of employment and training services. It continues to be responsive by refocusing and realigning our efforts to embrace the economic opportunities that will drive our region’s future. Our ability to adapt to a changing economy is a direct reflection on our board, staff and the numerous partnerships and collaborations we have nurtured over the years.
 
This past year, we implemented many new and innovative programs in our One Stop Career Centers to meet the needs of our job seekers and the businesses we serve. We’ve worked hard to make certain our regular programs and services are structured and delivered in a manner that ensures our local businesses have access to a skilled workforce and that every job seeker has access to meaningful employment.
 
Services for and training of at-risk youth continue to be major priorities. The foundation of our future economic viability lies with our ability to mold today’s youth into the jobholders of tomorrow. This is being accomplished through emphasis on mentoring, education and relevant work experience programs.
 
The Buffalo and Erie County Workforce System continues to provide outstanding leadership in the delivery of employment and training services.
