I have been a supporter of Job Train for over 20 years (back when it was known as OICW). I am so impressed with the work that they do and their clients' success rates. This is truly an effective organization that is helping people out of poverty by providing education, hands-on training, mentoring, and childcare. Their clients are motivated and dedicated to improving their situations through hard work and an interest in learning new marketable skills.
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.
I have worked with Jobtrain on the fundraising level for many years and am constantly amazed by both the staff and participants. Each individual's story is unique and Jobtrain provides the education and tools necessary to make significant career strides, ultimately changing one's life.
