Host a Fundraiser

Sponsor back-to-school packages for our students! Your donations will fund critical items such as steel boots for our carpentry students; baking utensils for our culinary students; and scrubs for our medical and nursing assistant students. You select the type and amount of packages, and we will assemble and deliver them to ring in the first day of class!
Offer an Internship
While our students are thoroughly prepared for their chosen careers while in the classroom, it can be challenging for them to find jobs once they graduate if they haven’t had relevant job experience. By providing an internship at your company, you will be helping to open doors and enrich the education of those who need it most in your community.
Hire Our Culinary Students
Looking to treat your office to a delicious meal? Work with our culinary program director to hire our culinary students to cater your next event! Not only will you be providing professional experience for our students, but also the money you spend on catering will help us supply our students with more classroom supplies and, accordingly, more learning opportunities. Not to mention you’ll be feasting on delectable, freshly made food. Why not have your cake and eat it too?
Host a Field Trip
While classrooms at JobTrain are great places to learn valuable career skills, we are always looking for ways to enrich our students’ education and to better prepare them for life after graduation. If you run a business in the medical, culinary, carpentry, or IT field, consider opening up your place of work for a visit from our students. They would love to hear about your day to day and see how their skills will translate in their new careers.
Corporate Giving Day/Volunteer Day
Lead an event through your employer. Employee engagement is a great way for companies to get engaged with JobTrain too!
