Workforce Investment San Francisco (WISF) Board


Workforce Investment San Francisco (WISF) is designated as the City’s Workforce Investment Board. The WISF plays an integral role in partnering with the Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) in overseeing and setting the direction for San Francisco’s Workforce System.


The mission of the WISF is to provide a forum where business, labor, education, government, community-based organizations and other stakeholders work together to increase their collective capacity to address the supply and demand challenges confronting the workforce.

Specifically the WISF is responsible for:

  • Establishing the direction of workforce development in support of San Francisco’s vision for economic competitiveness.
  • Creating strategic workforce connections between industry, business, labor, educational institutions, and community based organizations to serve the needs of workers and employers in the region.
  • Ensuring that the workforce system provides job seekers with education and training to achieve self-sufficiency.
  • Creating a framework to merge public and private resources and expertise to create an integrated workforce development and business service system.

The Workforce Investment Board and Youth Council are staffed by the Office of Economic and Workforce Development, which is charged with coordinating and centralizing the youth and adult workforce systems in San Francisco. The Office of Economic and Workforce Development will provide staffing support for the quarterly meetings including taking minutes, scheduling of meetings, and insuring compliance with regulations governing the WISF and Youth Council.
