Workforce Development Board
Cape Fear WDB is a primary convener of the workforce system. As directed under Federal legislation, the CFWDB brings together industry, education, labor, community, government, and other stakeholders in the workforce to develop demand-driven strategies connected to regional economies and labor markets. We oversee our four local NCWorks Career Centers in partnership with the NCWorks Commission and Division of Workforce Solutions to deliver workforce solutions, assist job seekers with improving their skills and finding jobs, and help businesses develop a qualified workforce.
