The Seventh Planning District Consortium Workforce Development Board

Pursuant to the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, each State is to establish and implement a statewide system of job training and placement to facilitate the entry and productive participation of eligible youth, adults, and dislocated workers into the workforce through the provision of training, education and job placement activities. The State of Louisiana, through its Governor, has designated the Seventh Planning District Consortium Workforce Development Board, which includes the parishes of Bienville, Bossier, Caddo (Balance), Claiborne, DeSoto, Lincoln, Natchitoches, Red River, Sabine, and Webster, as the Seventh Planning District Workforce Development Area.

Our workforce development board is comprised of business owners, corporate executives, local educational organizations, labor unions, economic development agencies, government entities and community-based organizations. Membership of the Board shall be comprised of a minimum of 12 private representatives and 11 public representatives. With a wealth of expertise, the WDB works side-by-side with the Sabine Parish Police Jury (Sub-recipient) and The Coordinating & Development Corporation (Fiscal Agent) to address workforce deficiencies, to upskill workers, to develop potential employees and to ensure the workforce development system offers the highest quality services to its customers.
