Virginia Workforce Network

Who we Serve

Partner Programs & Agencies

The Western Virginia Workforce Development Board strives to partner with all agencies and educational facilities in the region to develop workforce strategies and to include them as part of our workforce-training network. All training providers that have been WIA-certified locally are entered into the Commonwealth's network of providers accessible through the Workforce Centers.

The Western Virginia Workforce Development Board encourages involvement from area training providers by inviting them to participate in meetings, share their perspective on workforce training strategies, and serve on Board committees. The Workforce Development Board is a member of the Roanoke Higher Education Center which houses fourteen colleges and universities.
