Strictly Business Awards Luncheon

JVS believes that the best way to fight poverty is a job – and not just any job – a good job. On May 7th, 2020 we will gather nearly 1,000 business and community leaders to celebrate what’s possible when people are able to build skills for in-demand jobs and transform their lives. With more than one million people in our Bay Area community struggling to survive on less than $30,000 a year, your support is critical.

Unforgettable Stories
