For the first time in Israel – at Shalva!

Accredited by the Ministry of Labor and Social Services

The Vocational Training Ccenter was established by Shalva to provide young adults with disabilities with the job skills necessary to effectively join the mainstream job force. The vision behind it is the belief that not only are the families responsible for helping their members with disabilities, but it is society’s responsibility to accept these qualified young people into their midst not only socially, but within the framework of the workforce as well.  The graduates of these courses gain not only vocational skills, but self-confidence and skills that will enable them to lead more independent lives, as full members of society.

The three courses that are being offered so far are: Quality Assurance, horticulture, and flower arranging. The flower arrangement course began recently, and above are some pictures of the students on their first day of class.
