The Shenandoah Valley Workforce Development Board (Board) is part of a statewide workforce system which is business-driven, customer-centric, streamlined, and outcome-oriented. The Board carries out strategies and policies that support both the economic development mission(s) for the local area and the Virginia Board of Workforce Development’s (VBWD) goals.
