The Spokane Area Workforce Development Council is dedicated to creating a demand-driven workforce system in Spokane County. We make strategic public and private investments to ensure a skilled local workforce that meets the needs of our employers and creates a vibrant economy for the entire region.
Upon welcoming 2016, we immediately began working on this year's strategies and activities. These include new and innovative ways of collaborating with local businesses, educational institutions, and community partners to develop a talent pipeline that provides businesses with the skilled workforce they need to grow and prosper. We are excited to work with you to ensure that in 2016 we continue to increase the skills of our workforce and support regional economic development.

Respond to industry needs for a skilled workforce;
