Building Washington’s Workforce

WASHINGTON WORKFORCE ASSOCIATION

COVID-19 Resources

Washington state continues to meet the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the impacts upon our economy. The 12 Local Workforce Development Boards have adapted to this crisis by making all business and worker services available remotely. Our WorkSource Centers and staff are meeting with customers over the phone and online to provide information and assist with navigating a path forward. We are also partnering with state agencies and local government, as well as community-based organizations to connect to a wide array of resources designed to help weather this crisis and move forward in our state’s economic recovery.

About

wwa-logo-shadowed

The Washington Workforce Association (WWA) is a nonprofit non-partisan membership organization of the twelve Workforce Development Councils (WDC) of Washington State. The twelve WDCs are business led boards that coordinate and leverage workforce investments and strategies with stakeholders from education, economic development, labor and community based organizations to advance the economic health of their respective communities through a skilled and competitive workforce.

WDCs are certified by the Governor of Washington State with agreement from local elected officials under the requirements of the federal Workforce Investment Act of 1998, which calls for a comprehensive system to provide America with a highly skilled workforce that competes in the global economy.

WWA provides information, training, tools, and recommendations to policy makers, workforce development professionals, Workforce Development Council members, and the community at large to help make informed decisions about how to invest in workforce strategies. WWA works in partnership with other statewide, regional and national organizations advocating for a coordinated, funded system focused on the needs of job seekers and businesses.
