Our eighteen graduates will celebrate their accomplishment on Friday, January 29th at 2:00 pm via Zoom, where they will share their inspirational stories alongside Opportunity Junction staff.
When Nicole Hall graduated from the Administrative Careers Training program in 2018, she had no idea she would end up back at Opportunity Junction, only this time, as a full time employee!
We are proud and grateful to announce the following new grants and funding partnerships:
Keller Canyon Landfill Mitigation Fund: Opportunity Junction is proud to have been awarded a grant from the County's Keller Canyon Mitigation Fund to support Bay Point and Pittsburg residents participating in our Administrative Career Training. Supervisor Federal Glover leads the board that administers the funding to support a wide range of programs affecting quality of life for residents in the vicinity of the Keller Canyon Landfill, including public safety, youth development, and community beautification.
Thanksgiving is around the corner. This year, our Thanksgivings may be distanced, but the Opportunity Junction family is full of gratitude and here to spread the love.
The holidays can be a stressful and trying time for families who struggle to make ends meet. This year feels especially challenging with the pandemic requiring more social distancing during a time we are used to spending together.
