Welcome to Brunswick County

ACT Work Ready Community

ACT Work Ready Communities (WRC) empowers states, regions and counties with data, processes and tools that drive economic growth. Participants are leveraging the ACT®  WorkKeys®  National Career Readiness Certificate®  (NCRC®) to measure and close the skills gap — and building common frameworks that link, align and match their workforce development efforts.  Brunswick County has been an ACT Work Ready Community since 2019 and we have recently received our maintaining status through April 2025!
