With the headquarters on the Menlo Park/East Palo Alto border, JobTrain is a private workforce non-profit organization with accredited job training programs, a career center and a variety of related services including supportive services for adults and out-of-school youth to help lead them in sustainable, stable careers. We serve individuals who are overcoming significant academic, career and/or personal challenges to be successful in school and work arenas, and you our new Regional Director will help make this a reality! The Regional Director is responsible for the overall direction and the operations in Santa Clara County, and reports to the Chief Strategy Officer. The Regional Director will be working with JobTrain leadership to understand the most appropriate role for JobTrain and its services in the Santa Clara landscape, by creating and maintaining relationships. These relationships will be with departments within County services and with partners and providers in Santa Clara County. JobTrain, in partnership with Destination Home will design and implement employment and training programs and services to support formally homeless residents who reside in the County’ supportive housing. Destination Home is a Santa Clara based public-private organization that drives and aligns resources to create permanent housing and sustainable support systems built for the long term. The organization is improving how systems work together to end homelessness, as well as protect individuals and families at risk of becoming homeless. This program will provide skills upgrade, education and training, work readiness support, employment counseling and job development services to help prepare: low-income individuals with barriers to employment; people who currently or formally have experienced homelessness; at-risk youth and individuals with minimal skills or education; and, formally incarcerated individuals find a job and career of their choice. This program includes a Career Center to support residents with rapid employment services. JobTrain will work with all program residents who are actively seeking employment and provide them with referrals and job placement services. The Supportive Housing Education and Employment Program is also designed to be mobile so the staff will travel to satellite locations (usually at community CBO’s offices) and provide work readiness services, employment counseling, job referrals and support. The second year of this program will include a vocational training component, whereby residents will have the opportunity to earn industry certified certificates which can propel them on a career pathway that they choose. The primary portion of the work activities will take place in Santa Clara County, where the Regional Director (RD) will be based in the Destination Home office. Reporting to the Chief Strategy Officer, the (RD) will supervise a team of Community Engagement Employment Specialists charged with recruiting clients.
