JobTrain is advancing social and economic well-being in our communities by opening pathways to quality careers for people of diverse backgrounds throughout the Bay Area. We teach people the skills they need to find and retain meaningful, rewarding work, and we connect them with the life resources, opportunities, and personal support to propel them forward in life and ensure their prosperity.
Our 501(c)3 nonprofit educational and training institution is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Each of JobTrain’s programs combines vocational training, academics, and essential skills development, preparing students to turn their lives around—from unemployment and poverty to success and self-sufficiency. Strong partnerships with employers ensure that students receive the training they need for employment so that businesses can find motivated workers who are well trained for their jobs.
Since 1965, JobTrain has been adapting to meet current employment needs. Since its inception, more than 190,000 low-income individuals and their families have benefited from JobTrain’s programs.
