Dear Supervisor :

I support the San Francisco Living Wage Coalition’s efforts to pass legislation that will make the Community Jobs Program an innovative on-the-job training program. The original purpose of the program is to provide on-the-job training in non-public sector, non-profit service agencies to parents in the welfare-to-work transition who face the greatest barriers to long-term employment. As part of the original purpose, participants in the job training would meet the minimum qualifications for entry-level city jobs as well as be prepared for job searches in the wider job market.

However, the City has not provided a commitment to the full potential for this program. The City needs to take the Community Jobs Program seriously and treat it as a training ground for its own hiring pool.

This legislation would fast track participants into available entry-level City jobs that would be stepping stones in a career ladder to family-supporting civil service positions.

Sincerely,
