Workforce Development is an employment program that helps adults receiving CalWORKS cash aid to prepare for and obtain employment. We work with job-seekers, workers and businesses to meet their employment needs and contribute to a stronger economy in our county.
Our goal is to help people become employed, transition off public assistance, and build their skills to eliminate any barriers to employment. We also help our participants address other barriers to employment such as substance abuse, homelessness and domestic violence.
