Chase recently awarded Brotherhood Crusade with a $115,000 grant to support its Career-Path Technology, Vocational Training and Job Placement Initiative.

“At Chase, we believe one of the best ways for a region to advance economic opportunities is through workforce training,” said Antonio Manning, head of Global Philanthropy for JPMorgan Chase in Los Angeles.

The Career-Path Technology, Vocational Training and Job Placement Initiative will meet the following objectives: (1) Ensure unemployed South Los Angeles County residents will gain the technology, vocational, basic, life and social skills they need to pursue post-secondary education opportunities, or secure gainful employment. (2) Provide for under-employed South Los Angeles County residents to gain the technology, vocational, basic, life and social skills they need to pursue post-secondary education opportunities, advance in their current careers, or transition into a higher paying or more suitable career. (3) And ensure youth and young adults in South Los Angeles County will gain the technology, vocational, basic, life and social skills they need to pursue post-secondary education opportunities or secure gainful employment.

“We are delighted to partner with the Brotherhood Crusade to support its Career-Path Technology, Vocational Training and Job Placement Initiative,” Manning said. “We hope the Brotherhood Crusade can use our support to expand and continue its important mission of preparing a new generation of workers for growing job sectors such as technology and healthcare.”

Charisse Bremond Weaver, Brotherhood Crusade President and CEO said, “We are grateful to have JPMorgan Chase as a partner in moving our vision forward to equip young people to have the technological savvy to be competitive in the job market, as well as to pursue opportunities for higher learning.”

Two years ago, JPMorgan Chase announced a $10 million, five-year commitment toward workforce readiness and demand-driven training in Greater Los Angeles, as part of a larger $250 million global New Skills at Work initiative — the largest ever private-sector effort aimed at addressing the skills gap that exists across many industries, such as healthcare and finance, where not enough trained workers have the specific skills needed to fill the jobs available.

JPMorgan Chase is also a major sponsor for Brotherhood Crusade’s upcoming 2016 Pioneer of African American Achievement Awards, to be held Friday, December 9, 2016 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
