The Workforce Development Board of Kanawha County (WDB-KC) is a private, non-profit organization that is charged with creating a workforce development system that meets the current and future needs of the business community as well as those individuals seeking employment.

Our vision is to create the best workforce development system that benefits both employers and job seekers.  We're committed to helping people and businesses achieve their goals, whether that's earning degrees or certifications, planning careers, finding or training employees, or overcoming barriers. With our partners, we build and deliver programs and services to help you succeed.

Our goal is to make Kanawha County a better place to live and work by ensuring workers have the skills needed to succeed in their career, young adults are prepared to enter the workforce or educational institutions, and employers have the skilled talent needed to remain competitive.

Programs and services are available through funding from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) which provides training assistance and services to eligible adults, dislocated workers, youth and businesses.
