About the Council
The Alexandria/Arlington Regional Workforce Council serves as the local Workforce Development Board under the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). We are a proud partner of Virginia Career Works and Go Virginia.
The Council is comprised of individuals representing business, economic development, housing and urban development, vocational rehabilitation, organized labor, and community-based organizations. Members of the Council are appointed by the Mayor of Alexandria City and the Arlington County Board Chair.
The Council provides oversight over WIOA services at the region’s two American Job Centers, the Alexandria Workforce Development Center and the Arlington Employment Center. These services include financial support for college tuition and vocational certifications, subsidies for transportation, books and fees while in school, and uniforms for employment.
To be considered for eligibility for these services, visit the Alexandria Workforce Development Center (for Alexandria City residents) and the Arlington Employment Center (for Arlington County residents).
