Our Mission

To advance a workforce development system that meets business and job seeker needs.

The Workforce Development Board

Virginia’s Region 2000 Workforce Development Board (WDB) coordinates workforce training and career services through federal funding from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  The Region 2000 Workforce Center located at 3125 Odd Fellows Road in Lynchburg is the service delivery location for the WDB.  The Center assists local employers with services such as applicant screening, writing job descriptions, and training new employees.

The Center also coordinates classes and career services for Region 2000 residents and businesses as well as employment programs for youth. The Workforce Center serves unemployed workers who may need assistance searching for jobs or additional training for updating their skills.
