Village Training Division

The Village Training Division provides learning opportunities for individualized and group training in Work Readiness (WR), Independent Living (IL) and hard and soft job skills. Learning Opportunities are highly individualized and based on collaboration. One-on-one and small group trainings are offered throughout the year but also upon request. We strive to work collaboratively to facilitate and adapt established trainings and bring them to the Village Training Division in our all-inclusive classroom setting.

Client Testimonial

“I was becoming very discouraged with my job search when a friend told me about the Village Training Division’s WorkStrides seminar. I was very interested and immediately signed up.  Little did I know what an encouraging, inspiring and hope filled experience it would be! Because of WorkStrides, I became more confident and ready to continue my search to find a new career. It enabled me to look at my strengths and abilities in a new light. The facilitators were two of the best I’ve ever worked with, which is no small feat since I’ve attended dozens of workshops!  Because of the encouragement I received, I resumed my job search.  During this search, encouraged by the facilitators, I discovered that Village Community Services had an employment opportunity I qualified for.  I applied, was interviewed and was hired! And the job was all that I was looking for!”  –Kate Thorp
