Carlos, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission
“JVS and my teacher at John O’Connell High School ignited a passion I never knew I had. With this job, and this career, I can make good money, and live in the Bay Area. I’m excited to be a role model for more people, like me, in the water and wastewater trades.” — Carlos, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission
JVS helped Carlos pursue a journey from high school into a promising career in the water and wastewater trades. JVS connected him with Los Medanos Community College, a 3-year paid internship at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), and ensured he would meet the requirements he needed to apply for a position at the SFPUC after graduation. Nothing lights him up like getting paid to apply his education to a job he loves.
