The Delaware County Workforce Development Board (DCWDB) is a business-led Board that works in partnership with County Council. Our goal is to make sure that Delaware County has a dynamic and high quality workforce.
The DCWDB was established through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). The legislation was enacted in July 2014 and authorizes Workforce Development Boards to establish goals for workforce programs in their local communities. The DCWDB has set standards that will improve the quality of job seeker and employer services throughout Delaware County and Southeastern Pennsylvania. Because it is a business-led Board, it is expected to bring best practices to public workforce development programs and services.
The DCWDB provides leadership on critical workforce issues identified in the Local Strategic Plan. The Board also engages the community to deliberate on key workforce and economic development issues. The DCWDB also oversees programs and services to ensure high quality performance.
The DCWDB is comprised of volunteer leaders from private business, organized labor, education, economic development, human services and community-based organizations, all of whom are appointed by County Council to terms of three years.
The DCWDB meets quarterly. Meetings are open to the public.
