I have been involved with JobTrain for the past seven years. They give people the tools they need to transform their lives. They help their clients launch new careers and break out of the community’s existing cycle of poverty, low education levels, homelessness, drugs, crime, and prison. I am proud to be associated with this great organization.

This is an organization that consistently helps those who are most in need in the community. From offering them clothing, training and job placement, the staff and faculty are amongst the most dedicated and selfless people in the country. They quietly, efficiently and successfully accomplish the incomparable mission of giving people the dignity of a job, and have manage to do so on a lean budget. The impact of this non-profit cannot be overstated. The country needs a JobTrain in every neighbourhood.

JobTrain strengthens our local economy by improving the job skills of its clients, who have made the commitment to improve themselves by enrolling in one of the great programs at JobTrain. The impact to the client is life-changing, and the entire community benefits as prevously unemployed individuals gain the job skills that they need to obtain employment and become productive members of the community.

From at-risk to at work. From hopeless to hopeful. From displaced to career-placed. These transformations take place every single day at JobTrain. Whether teaching marketable skills for people seeking a career change or helping people reclaim their lives from welfare, addiction, incarceration and unemployment, JobTrain offers a hand up - not a handout. JobTrain is a dynamic and unique organization that truly goes the extra mile and produces measurable results. In a rough economy, JobTrain places approximately 75% of its graduates in quality jobs. Each individual success story proves that—with time, commitment and resources—powerful transformations do happen.

JobTrain is an amazingly effective organization that helps low income people gain job skills and become self-reliant. Their training programs are provided at no cost to students, and the results are very impressive. I encourage community members to visit their website at www.jobtrainworks.org to find out more about this nonprofit.

I am the parent of two JobTrain graduates. JobTrain does not only teach vocational skills, but also leadership, responsibility and what it means to be a reliable employee. Everyone is welcome at JobTrain. I have been involved in many non-profit and community organizations, and I can say that JobTrain not only talks the talk, but walks the walk for sure. JobTrain genuinely changes lives for the better every single day!

JobTrain is a welcoming organization that meets people where they are without judgement and listens to where they want to go with their lives. Through assessment tools and counselors, JobTrain helps prospective trainees figure out what career choice is best and then provides them with the vocational training to get a well paying job. The secret sauce of JobTrain is providing the life skills and vocational training with the right mix of motivation to achieve 80% training completion and job placement rates. The staff is terrific as many of the student testimonials on this site and the JobTrain website attest. As we say at JobTrain, "We help those most in need succeed." JobTrain has been doing an outstanding job serving its clients for over 40 years--it's a great organization with proven results in which to invest!

The best way to experience the transformative power of JobTrain is to attend a graduation ceremony. Come and you will see dozens of folks stunned and thrilled to have completed the first step of the rest of their lives. JobTrain gives folks who have never had a first chance a second chance to enter society, be productive, and have a great life. They have been quietly doing so for decades and it is high time more people learn about this great organization.
