What We Do In Rivers East


Rivers East Workforce Investment Consortium, a public-private partnership, administers a five county system of workforce development programs that prepare citizens for the workforce including those who are facing economic disadvantage, job loss, and other barriers to employment. Serving Beaufort, Bertie, Hertford, Martin and Pitt Counties, these programs also provide a central point for businesses for listing jobs, applicant screening and development of training systems. The Rivers East Workforce Development Board (WDB) develops policy and oversees these programs.

Rivers East WDB provides high support training and other services that result in increased employment and earnings, increased educational and occupational skills and decreased welfare dependency. The cornerstone of the programs is a system of NCWorks Career Centers. These Centers are part of a statewide network designed to improve the quality of the workforce as well as the state’s competitiveness in the global economy. The Centers and the related Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) programs are administered through the Mid-East Commission, a regional planning and development commission established by state statute that provides leadership in identifying regional issues and solving regional problems.

Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
