The NWDB is charged with integrating publicly funded workforce services and job training programs into a system that is flexible, seamless, accountable, and responsive to the needs of both workers and businesses.
Created pursuant to the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998, which is now the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) that was signed into law in 2014, the Newark Workforce Investment Board was incorporated in 2001. Now the Newark Workforce Development Board, the NWDB’s role is to ensure that optimal investments are made in the City of Newark to support workforce development, training, and job preparation for residents.
If you are looking for a training program, stop by the Newark One-Stop Career Center, open from 9:00-4:30, to find out how you can meet with a vocational counselor who will help you find training programs that will prepare you for in-demand occupations!
