Our Workforce & Business Development program provides the services listed below to individuals who want to find a job or to improve their skills.

Want to meet other job seekers, hear about available job positions, and connect with even more resources? Come to one of our Job Clubs!
Our Workforce & Business Development program uses a career development advice process to assist people who may be unemployed or under-employed. The process is called “Know Yourself, Know the Market, Make the Match.”
As you work through this curriculum, you will make an appointment to meet with one of our employment and financial coaches to explore personal and professional goals one-on-one, learn about job searching, and work through decision-making as you apply for jobs or choose a career.

Though it is not a requirement for program completion, participants who want or need additional computer skills can enroll in MVI’s 8-week computer literacy class.
This class is held three days per week in three-hour sessions in MVI’s computer lab, located at the Homestead office.
The program provides self-paced training on computer basics such as internet usage, Microsoft Office programs, conducting internet job searches, and submitting online job applications.
