The Northeastern Workforce Development Board

At the NWDB we are committed to growing and retaining employment and job opportunities for Northeastern North Carolina. Our job is to:

  • understand the needs of our workforce and the businesses that employ them;
  • leverage our resources and partnerships to create and promote innovative workforce solutions; and
  • manage and implement effective workforce programs and services for the region’s business owners and managers, workers, and future workers.

​As a result, we help to:

  • improve the skills, education, and productivity of our workforce
  • support our local businesses so they can grow jobs for our region
  • start our youth on the path to successful careers and future employment opportunities.
