All students have access to Essential Skills workshops on topics such as budgeting, goal-setting and conflict resolution. To help individuals prepare for the workforce, JobTrain provides academic and aptitude assessment, computer literacy training, resume preparation, job leads and academic remediation. Job placement services help students to set and achieve their goals. Each student receives one-on-one support from a counselor who helps them navigate their individual challenges, identify career goals, match students with job openings, and provides job search and job preparation support.
We collaborate with multiple corporate, nonprofit, and government organizations focused on economic and workforce development. Employer partners approach us regarding job openings, attend JobTrain job fairs, and maintain contact after placements to report on their employees’ progress. Some participate in student trainings; others provide informational interviews, internships, and host tours of their workplaces. JobTrain has reciprocal referral relations with Second Harvest Food Bank, Daybreak Shelter, Innvision/Shelter Network, and Peninsula Family Services.
