A local workforce system is a set of organizations and activities that prepares people for employment, helps workers advance in their careers, and seeks to build a skilled workforce to support employers and the local economy. Local workforce system organizations often perform multiple functions to serve adults and youth who need help preparing for and succeeding in the workforce. Local workforce systems include public, nonprofit, and private agencies and organizations, including employers and industry groups, and are supported by multiple federal, state, local, and private funding sources. How workforce system programs and services support local workforces varies according to local needs, priorities, and resources.
