Workforce Capacity Builders (WCB) is a four-county initiative consisting of representatives of Walton, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, and Escambia Counties. WCB has defined its mission as a regional workforce resource to "rethink how to address business needs through workforce development and K-20 education."
One strategy is to project workforce skill sets for the next ten-year period and to focus upon curriculum development to facilitate student skill mastery.
Another strategy is to link businesses to education with the notion that they can affect workforce development by becoming part of the educational "pipeline." In turn, they will benefit from having a constant influx of regional talent already trained and available.
