Workshop Services

The Vocational Training Program provides work from local and national companies. Our workers perform a variety of tasks such as packaging, polybaging, point of purchase display assembly, collating and sorting. We conform to all requirements of the Department of Labor and meet the accreditation requirements of the State of Illinois and national standards.
