On Wednesday, the SFMTA was awarded with an Employer of the Year Award during the Jewish Vocational Service's Strictly Business Awards Luncheon. The “Employer of the Year” award was based on an apprenticeship program we have with mechanics. Partnering with the San Francisco Unified School District’s Career Pathways program, we host students annually for a five-week career exploration experience in automotive and engineering trades. The event celebrated what’s possible when people are able to build skills for in-demand jobs and transform lives.

JVS is a Bay Area job training nonprofit whose mission is to transform lives and strengthen the community by helping people to build in-demand skills and find jobs to achieve self-sufficiency. The group has helped more than 85,000 people since 1973. We’re proud of this program and are looking forward to continuing this great partnership.
