Brianna Robinson, Opportunity Junction’s Vice President of Programs, has been selected to participate in the inaugural National Skills Coalition (NSC) California Advocacy and Policy Academy (CAPA) cohort.
CAPA is the first academy in the state focused on providing a platform for community-based organizational leaders to engage in state-level workforce development policy discussions.
Four or five years ago, Opportunity Junction applied to become a polling place. We thought it would have the dual benefits of making voting easier for our participants and of introducing Opportunity Junction to the local community.
We just found out that we will be a polling place for the March 3rd primary!
Friends, family, staff, and volunteers all celebrated the accomplishments of Class 60 of the Administrative Careers Training Program Friday, January 24, 2020. The graduation ceremony was held at the historic El Campanil Theater in Antioch and was sponsored by the Antioch Community Foundation.
City of Antioch Mayor Pro Tem Joy Motts served as our special guest speaker at the graduation ceremony.
With different roads all leading back to OJ, administrative training alumni Nadya Poveda, Maro'Jene Alexander, and Alana Chisholm are sharing their expertise, experience, and hearts as staff members.
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.
