VR’s Walterboro Office was recently part of Leadership Colleton’s Education and Workforce Day. Leadership Colleton participants learned about VR services, partners, and toured the Job Readiness Training Center.

The Walterboro-Colleton Chamber of Commerce created Leadership Colleton to help develop a core of informed, committed and qualified individuals for leadership roles.

Graduates spend approximately 100 hours in the Leadership Colleton program. They go on to serve in an advisory capacity to City and County officials, develop a sounding board for community concerns, become community leaders in government and civic areas, participate in Chamber of Commerce activities and serve as board of directors on various boards and commissions.
