About Us

As one of twenty-three Workforce Development Boards located throughout North Carolina, the Guilford Workforce Development Board helps individuals and businesses within our Triad region gain access to the programs and services that connect talent to jobs.  Our offerings are multi-faceted and we collaborate with a multitude of businesses, educational and training institutions, community agencies, as well as regional and state government representatives.

Guilford Workforce Development Board is made up of a group of community and business leaders appointed by local elected officials.  Additionally, we are locally staffed by individuals with years of experience in our specific local and regional economy.

If you have questions or would like more information please contact the main office at (336) 373-8041.

WDBs and WIOA

The federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) provides funds that support the program and activities of North Carolina’s Workforce Development Boards.  North Carolina’s WDBs are partnered with the North Carolina Division of Workforce Solutions (a division of the Department of Commerce) which is designated by the Governor to be the state administrative entity that receives funds under the federal WIOA. The program offers opportunities for adults, veterans, and youth.  Through the work at the local WDB level we help employers find the qualified talent they need to insure their business prospers.
