WorkSource Seattle-King County is not one organization, but rather a joint venture of many organizations
dedicated to addressing local employment needs, including:
- Workforce Development Council of Seattle-King County
- Local and state government
- Community & technical volleges
- Community organizations
Together, these organizations provide WorkSource services to adults, youth, and businesses throughout King County and connect
jobseekers with employers.
The Workforce Development
Council of Seattle-King County (WDC) is responsible for oversight of WorkSource Seattle-King County and ensuring the highest quality services for jobseeker and business customers. The WDC is a nonprofit workforce "think tank" and grant-making organization whose mission is to support a strong economy and the ability of each person to achieve self-sufficiency.
The WDC designates a WorkSource Operator to provide vision and oversight
for all local WorkSource site operations and services, according
to the guidelines established by the WDC. The Operator is competitively chosen and is currently the YWCA of Seattle-King-Snohomish County.
Partners in our WorkSource locations include state and local government
agencies, private organizations, and non-profits.
