American Graduate: Getting to Work

Ready to Work?

There are many paths to career success in high-demand, skilled jobs that do not require a traditional four-year degree. This is the place to learn how to get started on a path to a job and life you love, where to go to get support, and hear from those who have succeeded.


COVID-19 Assistance

WHRO's initiative, American Graduate: Getting to Work looks to support the workforce needs of the community. During emergencies, such as COVID-19, individuals and businesses can be severely impacted by lack of work and/or businesses closing or reducing hours. In these times we must work together to support our community. The Hampton Roads Workforce Council and the Greater Peninsula Workforce Board are here to help.

FOR INDIVIDUALS
While the Virginia Career Works Centers are closed, many resources can still be accessed over the phone, via email or online. As phone lines may have an extended wait time, online may be quicker to access for many. Click here for more information.

FOR BUSINESSES
The Hampton Roads Workforce Council and Greater Peninsula Workforce Board have received Rapid Response funding from the Governor, through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, to assist employers eligible to remain open during this emergency. Click here for more information.
