Thanks 4 Giving

Here at JobTrain, we consider ourselves to be a family. This family consists of our staff, students, Board members, community partners and volunteers. Each year we gather together to give thanks to all these incredible people, who are important pieces which make up the JobTrain puzzle. And what better way to gather like a family, than over a delicious Thanksgiving meal?!

Not only does this event bring us all together, but it provides an opportunity to say two very important, but often under-utilized words:

Thank you!


We say “thank you” to a variety of people including our dedicated staff members and Board members who have been here for 5, 10, or even 15 years of service! We also celebrate one Volunteer of the Year, who has dedicated time and energy and love into this organization. Thank you to these amazing individuals:
