What we do: Economic Workforce Development (EWD)
Workforce Development training helps our economy thrive. Napa Valley College offers vital training and workforce development services to help people seeking assistance in finding a new job, as well as those who need skills to advance in their field. We provide a wide range of career resources for people who are looking for work, laid off or in need of retraining to re-enter a changing job market.
We also work with businesses; from the small business owner to major county employers. Our Small Business Development Center (SBDC) provides a full range of services, including individual business counseling and workshops. We help start-ups gain a foothold and flourishing business maintain a competitive edge.
