Workforce Development

Waccamaw Regional’s Workforce Development programs are tailored to suit the needs of both employers and jobseekers. By helping the unemployed or underemployed find work that’s right for them, and matching employers up with workers who have the training and skills their businesses require, these programs help bolster economic growth in Waccamaw Regional’s three-county service area.

The workforce development arm of Waccamaw Regional serves as staff to the regional Workforce Investment Board. This group helps create policies and provides oversight for a wide range of workforce development services.

Waccamaw Regional has a full-service SC Works Center in each county it serves. Centers are located in Conway, Georgetown and Kingstree. These facilities are hubs where clients can find a variety of employment and training resources — most offered for free — under one roof.


The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA), which became effective July 1, 2000, established a national workforce preparation and employment system to meet the needs of businesses, job seekers and those who want to further their careers. Customers will have easy access to information and services through the SC Works system.

The purpose of these services is to promote an increase in the employment, job retention, earnings and occupational skills improvement by participants. This, in turn, improves the quality of the workforce, reduces welfare dependency, and improves the productivity and competitiveness of the nation.
