The Blue Ridge Regional Work Opportunity (BRRWO), a DOL WORC (Workforce Opportunity Rural Communities) funded program, is designed to help unemployed dislocated workers, new entrants into the workforce, and incumbent workers receive the skills, training, and education needed to retain current employment or improve employability.
The training focuses on in-demand occupations of our region such as Cyber Security, Mechatronics, Applied Laboratory Technician, HVAC Technician, Software Development, IT support, and more. The grant supports both college degree certificates and short term career training.
Eligible participants are supported through personal advising, enrolled in applicable courses at no cost, including textbook assistance, and career counseling. In addition, those in recovery are offered to complete the Recovery Coach Academy.
