Work/Vocational Education

For many students, being able to successfully hold a job is a dream.  At VATC we share that dream and support students in learning all of the social, economic and behavioral aspects of work.  We recognize that just being able to do a task - stocking shelves, for instance - is only a small part of work.  Being able to follow directions, get along with clients and coworkers, punctuality, maintaining time sheets, and dressing appropriately all play into whether a student maintains a job.

 

Our students are currently working in many environments, including small and large businesses, for profit and non-profit.  Some are volunteering, others are earning subsidized pay, while still others are employed outright.  All of these opportunities provide vital experiences for long-term success in future work/career choices.
