Providing services to help the First Coast work

In February, 2014, WorkSource became CareerSource Northeast Florida as part of a statewide branding initiative. Our legal name, First Coast Workforce Development, Inc., has not changed.

First Coast Workforce Development is a publicly funded agency that provides workforce-related services to six counties on Florida's First Coast – Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns counties.

We open the door to improved employment opportunities through education, training and career services for workers.
