Pre-Vocational Training Program


As a participant in our Pre-Vocational Training Program, adult individuals will have the opportunity to become involved in three unique but connected service options. The programs offered are Education, Volunteering and Entrepreneurship.

Through our education option, we strive to prepare our individuals for employment by guiding them through what could be challenging work services, reviewing coping skills, interview and job skills.

By volunteering, we promote inclusion by fostering positive relationships between our community and Bona Vista person’s served. We strive to volunteer for local organizations and businesses while developing work and pedestrian safety skills. 

Finally, we use the gifts and interest of our individuals to create unique items and encourage them to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities within the community.
