Peninsula Council for Workforce Development

Peninsula Council for Workforce Development

The Peninsula Council for Workforce Development provided valuable assistance in 2015 as one of the EDA’s premier providers of workforce development solutions for new, existing and expanding businesses in Newport News. Through job fairs, training programs and new employee screening processes, the Council consistently strives to join together the needs of the local business community with job-seekers in the area. Over the past year, the Council has broadened its approach to workforce development by playing a valuable role in bringing together businesses and local education partners to help align educational opportunities for students with the long-term needs of businesses.
