Olympic Workforce Development Council

Board Function and Purpose

      The Olympic Consortium Workforce Development Area serves the three-county region of Clallam, Jefferson, and Kitsap Counties. The Olympic Workforce Development Council and all staff are dedicated to the development of a workforce system that supports business, industry, and all levels of employers and job seekers. The Olympic Consortium is a hub for gathering and disseminating information about the area's labor market and business' employment needs. The OWDC is convening groups of businesses, collaborating with education and training providers, and researching, cultivating, and funding innovative solutions for workforce challenges. The Olympic Consortium Local Plan is a document detailing how the OWDC plans to coordinate with employers and job-seekers to grow the economy and train workers for the jobs of today and tomorrow.
