500 SF Bay Area Low-income Residents to get Training

GREAT News! Nonprofit Jewish Vocational Services (JVS), the Bay Area’s leading employment and training provider, received a grant to provide low-income and minority residents the professional skills needed to obtain stable jobs that can lead to life-changing careers. The grant will specifically fund career pathway programs that address the critical skill-building needs of people living in poverty with minimal work experience, long-term unemployed individuals and at-risk youth.

Corporate grants help finance the BankWork$ program, JVS’ new technology training program for long-term unemployed and the Summer Jobs Plus program for at-risk youth. BankWork$ is an 8-week national program that prepares adults from low-income and minority communities for careers in the financial services industry.

“The economic divide is growing in the Bay Area, making job search and career pathway programs vital,” said Abby Snay, JVS Executive Director. “Helping people secure the kinds of jobs that can support families over the long-term is good for business, good for those seeking jobs and, ultimately, good for our community.”

JVS is a nonsectarian nonprofit that has combatted unemployment for 40 years in the Bay Area. Their award-winning programs throughout San Francisco, the East Bay and the North and South Peninsulas help people build the skills and employer connections they need to find work and transform their lives.
