We are committed to helping veterans, those recently released from incarceration, opportunity youth, and those receiving federal assistance find the fulfilling work we all deserve and changing lives.
For all populations, the VTC also provides wrap-around support services, including workforce development, the removal of legal, health, social, and financial barriers that can prevent or affect employment, and up to 12 months of support after program completion to ensure job placement and retention.
VTC helps accomplish this through four important steps:
- Provide extensive, industry-recognized vocational certification
- Deploy our comprehensive Workforce Development Institute to teach job readiness skills, conflict management, financial literacy, and resume-writing strategies, as well as other necessary skills
- Provide customized case management to eradicate barriers that have previously prevented gainful employment
- Facilitate job placement by offering opportunities with the local companies with whom we partner
“I love my job. I love my life. I love it! I still talk to the staff once or twice a month. Maybe one day I’ll come back and help other people.” —Charles McIntosh, HVAC/R Systems
YOU CAN HELP TOO!
From those in the justice system who refer candidates to us, to the company recruiters who provide these candidates with livable wage careers, to the organizations and individuals that make it all possible through their generous program sponsorships and donations, our VTC graduates are grateful for your help every step of the way. Giving our community meaningful work and purpose is ultimately meaningful for all of us. And the VTC program’s success is a direct result of each groups’ contribution — most important of all the graduates!
