WALT is a public service organization with a small part-time staff, voluntary board and volunteers, seeking funding through private sector, local, state and federal to advance computer training and development in the rural areas of the Shenandoah Valley.
We provide short term training and professional development that guides the unemployed, dislocated, underemployed and never employed workers to a career and life path of employability. We are engaged in partnerships and cross-agency collaborations to create “educational partnership” that will enhance education and workforce training capacity.
A variety of services that are offered includes basic to advanced training in Microsoft applications, e-learning tools, transitional education, career exploration and work-life skills development. A high emphasis is placed on the training and development of youth and adults through established Community Technology Training Center (CTTC) to provide more access to computers.
