Workforce Readiness

The Workforce Readiness Committee is tasked with creating a set of objectives and strategies centered on increasing the number of Black Males entering and maintaining employment in the workforce.  This committee is also focused on preparing our youngest men of color to develop the necessary skills to be successful when they are eligible to enter the workforce.   There are a series of community partners that work in this domain to include the Office of Economic Development and Downtown Jobs Center, C-Ville Works, and Piedmont Virginia Community College.
