Peninsula Council for Workforce Development

The EDA continued to support staff efforts in working with the Peninsula Council for Workforce Development (PCFWD), supporting industry cluster activities in manufacturing, health care, hospitality and customer service, and initiatives such as Military and Veteran Transition Services, Youth Career Café, Disney Approach to Leadership Excellence, Government Contracting Seminar series, Youth Career Exploration Workshop and Annual Youth Expo Job Fair. Importantly, PCFWD played a significant role in directly assisting with several new and expanding Newport News businesses in 2013, including Canon, Liebherr, Tucanos and High Liner Foods.
