Service overview

Lynchburg Community Action Group, Inc (Lyn-CAG) now provides an Employment Services Program to assist the unemployed, underemployed or those persons who desire a career change. This program is NOT an employment agency, but we offer a range of necessary services at no-cost. These services are free to you; however, they are invaluable in making your job search a smooth and more focused endeavor.

Our commitment is to work with you in finding suitable and stable employment. We base this commitment on the agency’s mission: “Helping to meet the needs of people in Central Virginia.”

There are NO eligibility requirements or income criteria to participate in this NO COST program and receive services.
