Walking young lives out of poverty You can change lives today! Make a gift
Taller San Jose walks undereducated, unskilled and unemployed youth out of poverty by way of a strategically designed job training program. Taller San Jose acts as a powerful broker in the community – recruiting youth who are least likely to return to education or training and providing them a support system that mentors them into productive adulthood.
Prospective students can choose from one of four 16-20 week paid training programs that focus on key industry sectors:
- Medical Careers Academy
- Administrator and Billing Clerk Academy
- Office Careers Academy
- Construction and Green Technology Academy
To ensure interns successfully complete the job training program they are provided case management; help to resolve criminal or legal issues; childcare and transportation assistance, if eligible; on-going job coaching and placement assistance; links to ongoing education and training; workshops on how to budget, buy a car, enroll in college, etc.
