About Us

The State of Maryland, pursuant to the Federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014, has designated the Southern Maryland Workforce Development Board as the entity responsible for the direction and oversight of employment and training programs in the three Maryland Counties of Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s.

The Southern Maryland Workforce Development Board delivers oversight and guidance for the local workforce development system- a “one-stop” service delivery system comprised of various partners with the collective goal of meeting the needs of both job seekers and businesses.

The composition and structure of the Workforce Development Board are governed by the Federal Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act. Local Workforce Development Boards, in partnership with elected officials, establish and oversee the workforce systems and programs in their local workforce areas.
