As one of the 28 Workforce Development Boards across the State of Texas, Workforce Solutions Cameron is proud to offer our Cameron County employers and job seekers the full array of comprehensive staffing and workforce solutions designed to meet their employment needs.

We provide two full-service offices in Brownsville and Harlingen, and a Mobile Resource Unit that travels across Cameron County to low-income areas.  We work hard to deliver on our Vision Statement of being "the premier, proven provider of high-quality workforce resources for Cameron County.”

It is a well-proven truth that the prosperity of any region depends on the quality of its workforce. A quality workforce sustains current business and industry growth.  It attracts new industries to the area which brings more and better-paying jobs to the communities, which in return improves the overall quality of life for its citizenry.

Our administration works tirelessly with city and county officials, state legislators, school and college officials, and economic development professionals across the region to take advantage of funding opportunities. Funding opportunities can lead to capacity building and program development to stay on top of the changing workforce landscape.

This newly designed website will detail the many direct services and support services available for our area employers, and to our eligible clients - from childcare assistance to labor market analysis to formal workforce training - all with a click of a button!

Please take advantage of these services and let others know we are here to help them build their business or their individual careers
