The PA Workforce Development Association (PWDA) is a statewide trade association that serves the 22 local workforce development boards in the commonwealth. We partner with government to steer job seekers to skill development and employment opportunities, but PWDA does not work directly with individual job seekers.

Those looking for work or skill development should VISIT HERE for services that are available in your local community.

Who We Are

The PA Workforce Development Association (PWDA) serves as the voice of the Pennsylvania workforce development system and a clearinghouse for workforce development information statewide. PWDA develops and provides professional training to local workforce development boards, while continuing proactive advocacy efforts on behalf of the workforce development system.
