Innovations in Workforce Development
At JVS, we are constantly striving to improve our programming and outcomes for our clients. JVS is a recognized leader in workforce development, implementing innovative solutions to emerging needs in the job market. This innovation reaps benefits for both employers and the individuals JVS serves. In fact, a 2012 independent study completed by Boston University faculty showed that every $1 invested in JVS yields returns to program participants of $2-3 in higher earnings within the first 1-2 years of program completion, and returns of up to $15 within ten years.
