Alaska Workforce Investment Board (AWIB)

The vision for the Alaska Workforce Investment Board is to "build connections that put Alaskans into good jobs." This comprehensive vision keeps the board focused on developing a workforce system that is useful, accessible and understandable to all of the system's customers, which include businesses looking for qualified workers, unemployed Alaskans looking for jobs, and incumbent workers wanting to upgrade their skills in a changing work environment.

AWIB is the Governor of Alaska's appointed, lead planning and coordinating entity for Alaska's public workforce and development system. The Board provides policy oversight of state and federally funded job training and vocational education programs. Board members--who represent a variety of sectors in Alaska including business, industry, education, organized labor, and state government--examine employment trends and emerging occupations to ensure training efforts are aligned and that Alaskans are trained and ready for the jobs that pay well, and are in demand.
