Our Mission Growing the regional economy through a skilled workforce
Supporting and advancing a competitive workforce in South Central Kansas
The Workforce Centers of South Central Kansas are a one-stop resource for job seekers and employers. At the Workforce Centers, JOB SEEKERS will find the tools and training needed to build successful careers, and EMPLOYERS will find help with their hiring, training, or human resources needs. Because many local, state, and federal organizations help provide these valuable services, most are available free of charge.
Local Workforce Development Board
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity (WIOA) mandates that a majority of local board members come from the private sector. Representatives from various community based organizations and educational institutions that provide job-training services are also required to serve on local boards. Due to the large size of the LWDB, most of its work is done through a combination of standing committees and ad hoc taskforces.
Chief Elected Official Board (CEOB)
The Chief Elected Official Board appoints members to the Local Workforce Development Board and shares in the oversight duties of the local workforce development operations.
WIOA supersedes the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and amends the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, the Wagner-Peyser Act, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. In general, the Act took effect on July 1, 2015, the first full program year after enactment, unless otherwise noted.
