The New River/Mount Rogers Workforce Development Board is here to serve you. The board was formed to facilitate and coordinate workforce initiatives, enabling economic growth and increasing the standard of living of the citizens that reside in ten counties and three cities in Southwest Virginia.
The Workforce Development Board (WDB) is a creation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014, which was written to address the human needs, associated with employment in every region. The Board is made up of business and community leaders so the region’s interests are represented. The WDB is funded wholly or in part by funds provided by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 and administered by the U.S. Department of Labor.
