"Opportunity Junction made me feel confident in something I thought I had lost. I felt a sense of myself again. I am not just a mom. I am both; I am more. The skills were important, but the feeling of confidence I had lost over the last decade came back, too," shares Deb Carcache, alumna of Class 59 of the Administrative Careers Training program (ACT).
We are proud and grateful to announce the following new grants and funding partnerships:
Contra Costa County Community Services Bureau: Contra Costa County's Community Services Bureau (CSB) awarded another round of key funding for the Administrative Careers Training (ACT) Program, helping with staffing, as well as alumni services and paid internships for program graduates. CSBG is part of the national Community Action Partnership network of over 1,100 agencies that work to alleviate poverty and empower low-income families in communities throughout the United States.
Opportunity Junction's Do-It-Yourself Tax Assistance is now virtual! All taxpayers are welcome to sign up for our no-cost income tax preparation class, held via Zoom on Thursday evenings at 6 pm and Saturday mornings at 10 am. Sessions end on Saturday, April 17th, 2021.
We’re hiring again at Opportunity Junction to help us expand our Healthcare Career Pathway partnership. We’re seeking two Registered Nurses, one to launch Certified Nursing Assistant training in our Antioch office as the director and instructor, and one to work on extending the pathway with continuing education and new sites.
