Workforce Development Board

On July 1, 2015, a new law, Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) was implemented to replace the Workforce Investment Act (WIA).  WIOA created a unique national workforce preparation and employment system designed to meet the needs of both career seekers and businesses.  Because Los Angeles America’s Job Center of California is funded through WIOA dollars, most services are available at no cost.  These services are provided through America’s Job Center of California (AJCCs) located throughout the state.

The Workforce Centers throughout Los Angeles County have been rebranded to America’s Job Center of California (AJCC)  As AJCCs, they follow a business services model that provides a fundamentally different approach to serving customers.  The model ensures the reliable delivery of services to businesses as well as the sharing of job listings and potential candidates throughout an entire countywide network.

Los Angeles County America’s Job Center is a collaborative effort between multiple local Workforce Development Areas within the County of Los Angeles, as well as Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services/GAIN, Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation, and the California Employment Development Department, who came together to better serve the employment and training needs of the Los Angeles region.

The organizations that make up Los Angeles County America’s Job Center of California saw the need for delivering consistent and quality workforce development services throughout the region.  These services strengthen the local economy by creating a skilled workforce to help local businesses prosper.
