Elevate Virginia
The power to Elevate Virginia is rooted in the Commonwealth’s people and its businesses.  Whether it is the businesses that already call Virginia home or new companies considering a new location, the strength of the workforce is their primary concern.  Virginia’s future economic strength and global competitiveness depend on the readiness of a highly skilled and well-trained workforce to fill the increasingly complex jobs that mark the 21st century economy.
