Skill & Professional Development RVA
Community group in Richmond that helps professionals learn tech and career skills
Richmond Community Workshops
Skill and Professional Development RVA was started as a way for me to connect with the Richmond community that has given me so much as a young founder. When I moved to Richmond in August I didn't really know that much about the area and moved here to participate in an accelerator program with Lighthouse Labs. After being in Richmond for only a couple of months I learned that this was tight-knit community of professionals who lift each other up and help each other grow.

I started Skill and Professional Development RVA as a community group on Meetup that hosts monthly workshops on technical skill and professional development for members of the Richmond community and beyond (we even have a member from Hampton Roads who comes up for the workshops!). To date we have over 150 members in our group and have hosted many awesome workshops. Check out some of the workshops below!
