Via of the Lehigh Valley - Work Training Services WorkshopEverybody Works Via's Employment services are based on the belief that Everybody Works and no one should be excluded.

A job provides a chance to meet new people, establish friendships and enjoy the company of others. Work means learning something new, practicing old skills and making a contribution by accomplishing something meaningful.
