The Education, Training, and Employment (ETE) program's goal is to involve the residents of MCVET in higher education or skilled training programs that will enable them to secure first-rate employment and higher paying salaries. The first phase of the ETE program is assessment. Assessments are done in two parts. The first part is conducted with a group of peers while the resident is still in the Emergency Shelter Program. The second part is completed after the individual's case manager makes the referral to ETE. After a resident is enrolled into a training program, the ETE program coordinator tracks his performance until the completion of his program. The individual will then be referred to employment services.
The employment service component of ETE is structured in partnership with Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulations (DLLR). This comprehensive program includes intensive job development, job search, labor market information, assisted placement, job workshops, resume preparation, and interview skills training.
