The Northeastern Workforce Development Board (NWDB) is a group of community leaders appointed by local elected officials. We serve five counties, including: Aroostook, Hancock Penobscot, Piscataquis, and Washington. The purpose of the NWDB is to provide policy, planning and oversight for workforce development programs, and address workforce barriers as identified by the communities. In addition, we also work to link recovery with the workforce system.




We’re here to make the Northeastern area of Maine
a better place to work and live.

The Northeastern Workforce Development Board serves Aroostook, Hancock, Penobscot, Piscataquis, and Washington Counties.

We believe that, to improve our local workforce, we must first understand it from all angles. We communicate with employers about their specific needs, collaborate with educators to provide the necessary training, and ultimately, we empower employees with the skills they need to get the job they want.

We believe in helping people reach their full potential. This kind of investment is not only good for people, it’s good for business!
