Regional job support center has relocated to Turner Road in Chesterfield

The Capital Region Workforce Partnership and the Capital Region Workforce Development Board will celebrate the new location of its workforce center in Chesterfield County with a grand opening and open house Friday, May 19.

The Chesterfield Resource Workforce Center has relocated to 304 Turner Road, off Midlothian Turnpike, west of Chippenham Parkway.

The grand-opening ceremony will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Gov. Terry McAuliffe is expected to attend along with state and local officials and business leaders on the board. The open house will follow from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The grand-opening ceremony and open house are open to the news media and public.

The partnership operates three Resource Workforce Centers to assist individuals with job-skills development, educational advancement and credential attainment. The centers are open to employers and individuals 18 and older who are unemployed or underemployed.

The other workforce centers are at 203 E. Cary St. in downtown Richmond and 121 Cedar Fork Road in eastern Henrico County. The partnership and board promote job development and economic strength in an area that encompasses the city of Richmond and the counties of Charles City, Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, New Kent and Powhatan. Henrico serves as the grant recipient and fiscal agent for the board.

The Chesterfield Workforce Center previously operated at 7333 Whitepine Road. The new facility, which is near a GRTC Transit System bus line, is easily accessible to residents of Chesterfield and Richmond. For more information, go to resourceva.com or send email to turnerrdopening@henrico.us.
