About PIVA

WHAT?   PluggedInVA is a program that prepares adult learners with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the workforce and in college. The program offers comprehensive training focusing on positions that require customer service skills.

WHO?   If you are 18 or older and have a high school diploma or a GED (or are near completion), you may be eligible for PluggedIn. 

WHEN?   Applicants must be able to commit to a six month program starting December 2014 and continuing through May 2015. PluggedIn students will have classes five days a week from January to May.

HOW MUCH?   PluggedIn students will receive free adult education courses and will be assisted in applying for federal financial aid and Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funds to cover up to 100% of PVCC courses. 


Following general information sessions, candidates will go through an interview process. Then, up to 20 students will be selected to participate in PluggedIn.

Applicants, especially City residents, who are eligible for or receiving services under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), are encouraged to apply.
