The Roca Blanca Trade School

The difficulties that abound within the Oaxacan economy often make life very difficult for graduating Bible students. The Roca Blanca Trade School comes alongside of the Victory Bible Institute to equip our students with tent-making skills through various trade training programs. As the graduates are sent out into the villages and nations, to which they have been called to minister, they will have been given great opportunities and abilities to become financially sustainable in order to care for their families, uphold their ministries and rub shoulders with the community through applying their trade. Students are given the opportunity to choose a trade direction that interests them, and to focus on this training over a three-year period.

The following trades are taught at our trade school depending on the availability of instructors and volunteers:

  • Sewing – Machine Sewing, Embroidery, Hand Sewing, etc.
  • Multimedia – Videography, Website Design, Photography, etc.
  • International Cooking
  • First Responder Medical Training (1st Year Only)
  • Welding – Arc, MIG, Plasma, Oxy/Acetylene, etc.
  • Carpentry – Furniture, Cabinetry, Spray Varnishing, etc.
  • Handyman – Electrical, Plumbing, Air-Conditioning, Construction, etc.

 In the near future, we desire to add:

  • Cosmetology
  • Auto Mechanics
  • Aluminum Doors and Windows
  • Certified Nursing Program

Maybe you love to cook, sew, or are a “do-it-yourselfer.” We need you to come and share your valuable experience with our students!
