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 theGreater Peninsula Workforce Board are here to help.
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.
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.
