Penn Asian Vocational Institute (PAVI)

PAVI was established in 2006 to provide job training for bilingual immigrants interested in the healthcare field.  PAVI offers training for Certified Nurse Assistants, Home Health Aides and Vocational ESL for healthcare workers.

In 2013, PAVI trained 96 Home Health Aides and employed 608 full and part-time Home Health Aides, the majority of whom spoke one or more Asian language.

PASSi received a 3-year grant, from 2010-2013, from the US Department of Health and Human Services to fund the vocational training program and provide tuition assistance.
