The mission of The Workforce Connection Board is to create a competitive, skilled and educated workforce by providing a system for individuals to gain meaningful employment responsive to the needs of business.

The One Stop Centers in Rockford. Freeport and Belvidere provide one contact for employers to find workers and for job-seekers to receive training, education and employment services.
