About Us

WorkSource California is a collaborative effort between multiple local Workforce Investment Areas within the County of Los Angeles, as well as Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services/GAIN, Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation, and the California Employment Development Department, who came together to better serve the employment and training needs of the Los Angeles region.

The organizations that make up WorkSource California saw the need for delivering consistent and quality workforce development services throughout the region. These services strengthen the local economy by creating a skilled workforce to help local businesses prosper.

On August 7, 1998, President Clinton signed into law the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA). The Act created a unique national workforce preparation and employment system designed to meet the needs of both career seekers and businesses. Because WorkSource California is funded through Federal WIA dollars, most services are available at no cost. WorkSource California Services are provided through "One-Stop" Career Centers located throughout the county.

More than 40 of these One-Stop Centers throughout Los Angeles County have adopted the WorkSource California brand. As WorkSource/One-Stop Centers, they follow a business services model that provides a fundamentally different approach to serving customers. The model ensures the reliable delivery of services to businesses as well as the sharing of job listings and potential candidates throughout an entire countywide network.
