About Us

Our vision is Appalachia unlocking its full potential, power and purpose.

Revitalize Appalachia is a social enterprise of the Coalfield Development Corporation that develops the green-collar construction workforce through on-the-job training in modern construction techniques. Tangible community projects are completed in mostly vacant and abandoned buildings as well as on former mine-lands. Our work-crews see the construction aspects across Coalfield’s family of enterprises through to completion. We focus on improving environmental remediation practices and policies and have redeveloped over 160,000 square feet of formally dilapidated commercial property in southern West Virginia.
