The South Central Workforce Development Board (SCWDB) is the designated regional convener and administrative entity that coordinates workforce training and career services through federal funding from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). We are charged with overseeing and implementing workforce development initiatives and activities throughout the Virginia Career Works – South Central Region.

The SCWDB collaborates with contracted program operators and workforce system partners to assist employers with applicant screening, writing job descriptions, and training new employees. The SCWDB also ensures that classes and career services are effectively delivered for Virginia Career Works – South Central Region youth and adult residents as well as businesses. The meeting dates for the Workforce Development Board can be found here.
