We are proud and grateful to announce the following new grants and funding partnerships:
Chevron: As part of its Social Investment Partnership Initiative, Chevron awarded Opportunity Junction a grant for core operating support. Chevron supports a range of job training and workforce development programs that provide opportunities for people to learn career-building skills to succeed in the jobs of the future. These programs have pivoted to online delivery during the pandemic thanks to support like Chevron’s.
Dear Opportunity Junction Supporters,
We are blown away by your generosity and support this past year! Altogether, including the matching funds from Delta Scrap and Salvage, 155 donors contributed over $111,250! We are so thankful to all of you, including the 58 new donors who joined us this year.
Please save the date to join us in celebrating Opportunity Junction’s 21st Birthday, A Coming of Age, at our virtual 2021 Imagine Gala. The Gala will be held virtually on April 24th 2021 from 5-6pm PST. The funds raised from this annual event will allow Opportunity Junction to build stronger communities by helping motivated Contra Costa job seekers gain the skills and confidence to launch careers that lead to financial security.
In 2019, we launched a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program as the first branch of our Healthcare Career Pathways (HCP) initiative. The program, which runs in partnership with Mt. Diablo Adult Education in Concord, has graduated 3 cohorts of successful CNA's! This April, our Antioch office will become home to the expansion of our Healthcare Career Pathways initiative, bringing more healthcare training opportunities to East Contra Costa. We are thrilled to add CNA training to our home office where we have been offering Administrative Careers Training since our launch in 2000.
Our eighteen graduates will celebrate their accomplishment on Friday, January 29th at 2:00 pm via Zoom, where they will share their inspirational stories alongside Opportunity Junction staff.
