Who We Are
Workforce Connections, a Department of Labor Workforce Investment Board.
We’re just like you. We live here, we work here, we raise our children here…and we want Southern Nevada to be the very best it can be.We are a group of elected and highly motivated individuals whose mission is to get Southern Nevada’s workforce back on its feet through partnering with a wide array of employers and agencies dedicated to investing in the future of our communities.
We serve the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City, and the counties of Clark, Lincoln, Nye and Esmeralda.
Our Mission: To develop a world-class workforce development system that complements the State of Nevada’s overall education and economic development strategy and guides federal, state, and local employment and training resources in a customer focused, and user-friendly manner promoting a high quality, competitive workforce.
To meet these goals, Workforce Connections distributes funds earmarked for training, apprenticeships and other viable approaches designed to couple the right workers with the right employers. Rather than finding employment for job seekers, we work with relevant agencies and organizations to connect those looking for a job with the best resources available so that they can make a difference in their own lives.
