Building Partnerships for a Better Workforce
The Metro North Regional Employment Board (REB) is a public-private partnership whose mission is to enable area residents to gain the skills to maximize their economic self-sufficiency and provide employers with the workforce they need to effectively compete in the changing world economy. As one of 16 local Workforce Investment Boards established in Massachusetts by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, the REB was formed to: set local workforce policy; determine how state and federal funds are best used for workforce development; align the needs of employers to the needs of area residents; convene industry partnerships to align educational curricula with business needs and develop career pathways; and oversee the Metro North One-Stop Career Centers, where both job search and employer services are provided. We lead the Metro North STEM Network and the Metro North Healthcare Partnership, and co-lead the Northeast Advanced Manufacturing Consortium. The REB serves the following 20 Massachusetts cities and towns: Arlington, Belmont, Burlington, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Malden, Medford, Melrose, North Reading, Reading, Revere, Somerville, Stoneham, Wakefield, Watertown, Wilmington, Winchester, Winthrop, and Woburn.
