Without proper education and workforce development our businesses would struggle to stay on the cutting edge. The Dinwiddie County Chamber of Commerce diligently strives to meet the needs of it’s business future through partnerships with the Dinwiddie County Public School system, Crater Workforce Development and many other smaller partnerships that provide sound work ethics, soft skills and future development of the workforce needed now and in the future.
Without funding, some bright young students would not attend college or technical schools after graduation. Through our annual Christmas Parade, the registration fees collected from our participants goes directly to Scholarships for our students. Over the past two years we have awarded five scholarships to graduating seniors from Dinwiddie High School.
For more information abut participating in the parade, visit our parade page, here.
Working with the Education Task Force, members have been involved with events like the annual Health Fair, as well as combining talents to fill gaps wherever needed for our students and their varying educational needs.
Skilled labor needs are ever changing. This Team also works with the Career and Technical Education Board to voice where Dinwiddie County may have gaps in their training and to provide arenas for students to put their learned skills to work at local businesses. Chamber members are made aware of what need arises and where they can benefit as much as the student and possible future employee.
Partnering with business, government, schools and community, Dinwiddie County Chamber of Commerce makes Dinwiddie County a great place to live, work and learn!
