Our Mission

The Region 4 Workforce Board is an innovative and collaborative problem solver that promotes and supports skills development and lifelong learning as a means of achieving economic success and improving the quality of life of our citizenry.

Our Vision

The Region 4 Workforce Board is more than just a board. We are unrelenting builders of options to develop skills and knowledge of diverse peoples, firms, and future entrepreneurs.

We envision a region where skills and knowledge are highly valued as pathways to personal wealth, as well as to unite regional economic growth. We envision a region where family values and quality of life are key parts of the fabric of our community. Our region will be known for its innovation, will be a national model for workforce development, and will be bursting with opportunity that will catalyze and transform our region’s economy.

Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Local Plan

The WIOA Local Plan is the primary vehicle for communicating the Local Board’s vision for the local workforce development system. WIOA requires workforce boards to develop and submit a comprehensive four-year local plan to the State for approval. The plan must address current and future strategies and efficiencies to advance the continuing modernization of the workforce development system and the creation of a customer-centered system. The Local Plan must also support and be consistent with the strategies in the State Strategic Workforce Plan.

The draft is available for public comment.  Review the draft of the Region 4 WIOA Local Plan. Submit comments to Roger Feldhaus at rfeldhaus@tap.lafayette.in.us by January 15, 2021.
