    As the economic fall-out from the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the Virginia Ready Initiative (VA Ready) formed with the urgent need to get Virginians back to work. Virginia’s newly filed unemployment claims approached 800,000 by June of 2020. This impact has disproportionately been felt both by workers in lower paid industries (e.g., food service, accommodation) and by racial minorities.

    VA Ready is a public charity focused on retraining Virginia’s unemployed for in-demand occupations in high-growth industries. VA Ready brought together more than 35 leading companies across Virginia and established a partnership with the Virginia Community College System and the Commonwealth’s existing FastForward Workforce Credential Program.

    VA Ready provides registered VA Ready Scholars a $1,000 Credential Achievement Award upon obtaining the final credential in selected training programs in the following sectors: computer and cyber, healthcare and manufacturing/skilled trades.
