JVS provides a broad range of services including adult education, skills training, job readiness training, job placement and support, and access to post-secondary education. JVS assists employers in their search for well-qualified job applicants and their initiatives to upgrade the skills of their incumbent workforce.

All JVS TGH clients must attend an orientation class to learn how to use the unique features of their Chromebooks.
