WVI's goal is to offer computer training for low-income population, especially, English as a Second Language (ESL) speakers incorporating language learning programs to further improve their comprehension levels.
Each participant will be assisted to ensure maximum 'voluntary' benefits based on needs and suggestions - what the situation is, and how could we make it better....
We strive to build consistency and create a safe environment for learning.
We are willing to collaborate with other agencies in order to offer the highest level of assistance (without duplication of effort) to promote excellence for all students, as well as adults.
Our thanks and appreciation to our sponsors and donors who made this initiative a success, namely: Microsoft Office 365, Baker College Flint, Fifth Third Finance Academy, and a host of other donors, who wish to remain anonymous.
The Woven Vessels International Ministry and the Center for Cultural Empowerment was awarded the honor and opportunity to try out Microsoft's 365 most trusted communication and collaboration products until 2028, all brought together online. We look forward to a long relationship with Microsoft Office 365 as they help reduce costs and provide greater value through these services.
Baker College Flint donated 31 gently used computers.
Our Goal is to create a program that would provide relevant application and practices unique to each individual's learning curve. It would allow students to strengthen learning and build confidence based on their accomplishment. We provide skills that would promote career readiness and employability.
Our community is an environment in which many ideas and races are socially assimilated - residents represent various continents. The Lansing School District serves students who speak more than 200 languages. The campus of Michigan State University has a tremendous number of immigrants and resettled students with varied languages attending classes. We partner with the Department of African Studies at the university, as well as community agencies, who are committed to assisting with English as a Second Language (ESL) and providing skills that are transferable and employable.
Organizations that are committed to bridging the gaps are essential. Partnerships are limitless. It is important to tap into the resources to assist as many newcomers as possible. Become a Sponsor!
