Workforce Development Board

The PIC is Boston’s Workforce Development Board, a federally authorized body that oversees Boston’s one-stop career centers and the federal investment in job training, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development. The PIC is one of sixteen workforce boards statewide.

The Mayor, as the chief elected official, appoints the members of the Boston Private Industry Council, which serves as the MassHire Boston Workforce Board. The Board is comprised of leaders from business, education, government, labor, and community based organizations. It oversees the distribution of public workforce development funds in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development. Spending recommendations for adult and youth service dollars are reviewed in detail by its subcommittees, which include the Workforce Development Committee and the Youth Council. The Board charters MassHire Boston Career Center and works through them to implement workforce development strategies.

On May 8, 2023, the MassHire Boston Workforce Board released a new Request for Proposals for a Comprehensive Career Center Operator, FY2025 – FY2028. Proposals are due on Friday, October 7, 2023.
