work2future's 2017 Local Plan Approved

The California Workforce Development Board has approved work2future's mandated Local Plan for the 2017–2020 program years. The overarching goals of the Local Plan are to enhance and coordinate employer engagement in the region, build career pathways and regional sector strategies, empower the workforce to be more self-sufficient, and streamline and coordinate services and operations. These goals are in full alignment with the goals articulated in the Bay-Peninsula Regional Plan, of which work2future is one of four local workforce boards, and the California Unified State Plan. The Local Plan was developed with the participation of board members, work2future partners, and community stakeholders. It covers the Silicon Valley Workforce Development Area, which includes San José and seven other cities, as well as unincorporated Santa Clara County.
