Workforce Development

MVLE is dedicated to assisting the individuals we support achieve integrated community employment that is a right fit for them.  We recognize everyone has not only unique needs, but most importantly unique talents and gifts.  MVLE believes that by assisting individuals recognize and cultivate those unique talents we may then be able to turn those talents into a job opportunity.

We further recognize that employment means different things to everyone.  For some it may mean a full-time job; for others it may mean working part-time and then participating in other activities; for others still it may mean working one day a week for a few hours, then volunteering for a worthy cause, or spending time with friends and family.  Some may wish to work as a part of a team, others may wish to work by themselves.

MVLE is committed to assisting individuals who want to work, learn new skills and be able to work in a job of their choosing.

MVLE provides Workforce Development support through a variety of programming:
