The mission of the Regional Partnership Workforce Development Board is to help employers meet their workforce needs and help individuals find jobs and build careers.  By doing so, we strengthen the local economy and meet the demands of global competition.

 

Our work reaches adults seeking more meaningful careers, dislocated workers aiming to regain employment, and youth focused on getting the right start in life.  We are committed to excellence in service delivery and customer service by providing universal access to high quality workforce information and services for all customers:  the unemployed, underemployed, and currently employed workers, public and private employers, students and youth.

We work alongside employers from a broad range of industries that need workers with the training, skills and dedication to produce important products and services.

We coordinate the efforts of public and community resources to enhance North Carolina’s workforce capabilities.  Guided by an integrated, regional approach, we are committed to innovation and forward-thinking.
