Workforce Development for the
San Diego Region

The San Diego Workforce Partnership funds and delivers programs that empower job seekers to meet the current and future workforce needs of employers in San Diego County. We are the local Workforce Development Board, designated by the City and County of San Diego.

Building a Strong Workforce

Together with community partners, the Workforce Partnership provides targeted employment services designed to help eligible adult job seekers identify, or regain, a career that will promote their success. Additionally, our career centers provide employment services, including career assessment, job training and job search assistance for San Diego residents whether unemployed or employed.

Training Our Future Workforce

We fund and deliver programs that provide work-readiness training, work experience and more to young adults ages 16–24 that focus on opportunity youth who are neither working nor in school. The goal is to prepare young adults for high school graduation, post-secondary education and, ultimately, a career.

Studying Regional Data

The Workforce Partnership serves as a vital source of information on the region’s labor market. We are the go-to expert on workforce trends, in-demand occupations and high-growth industries in San Diego County. We produce reports and other products that focus on key workforce topics and trends. This data informs job seekers, career counselors, trainers and educators about what employers are looking for in the current and future labor force.
