Donate to JobTrain

JobTrain provides individuals with the opportunity to pursue their goal of achieving self-sufficiency and financial stability. This wouldn’t be possible without supporters, like you.

Who does JobTrain serve?

JobTrain students are the parents working multiple minimum wage jobs just to make ends meet and still can’t seem to pay their bills on time. They are the people who have made mistakes, paid their dues to society, and now have to try and enter a workforce that is highly competitive, and find that acquiring new skills is expensive and difficult. They are the young, who need help deciding the direction their careers will go; they are the not-so-young, who find that their age now discriminates them from many positions. For over half a century JobTrain has help the most in need to succeed by training them for jobs with sustainable wages and providing the support and life skills for their success.
