Training Bay Area Workers for Family-Sustaining Careers in Healthcare

The Problem

Women and low income workers lost 5 million jobs in 2020—with Hispanic and Black women suffering a disproportionate share of the lost income and work. While the Bay Area job market is slowly recovering, not all jobs are coming back. Furthermore, the pandemic has greatly increased the need for skilled workers in the healthcare sector.

The Solution

STEP Into a Job! trains the Bay Area workers for high-growth careers in healthcare with donor-funded investments in real people—making an immediate impact where it’s needed most—in the lives of those who’ve been hit hardest by the pandemic’s economic downturn. We do this through funded training programs that quickly make an impact in our students lives giving them certifiable skills that will provide them and their families with more stable work, and family-sustaining wages, while filling the increased need for medical workers.
