The Luzerne/Schuylkill Workforce Investment Board understands the regional significance and importance of assisting those who make up the workforce in upgrading their skill levels in careers that are in demand and pay family sustaining wages. Today’s economy has created the need for a workforce with strong academic, workplace, and technical skills. A comprehensive strategy is needed for Pennsylvania to remain competitive.
Our strategic plan is designed around this vision to meet this mission:
The Luzerne/Schuylkill Workforce Investment Board will increase the prosperity of Luzerne and Schuylkill Counties through a world-class competitive workforce.
To ensure a demand-driven, world-class workforce system aligned with economic development and education.
The L/S WIB Strategic Plan is the renewal of a commitment on the part of this board to ensure a demand-driven, world-class workforce system aligned with economic development and education. The economic forecast for Northeastern Pennsylvania encompasses more than just two counties, so regional collaborative efforts are in place with neighboring Workforce Investment Areas. These areas are represented by the WIBs of Lackawanna County, the Northern Tier, Pocono Counties, and the Lehigh Valley.
