CJC is a coalition of community-based training organizations, advocacy groups, businesses and individuals working toward ensuring access to employment and career advancement opportunities for people living in poverty.
Since 1981, CJC’s membership has grown to include over 100 organizations and individuals. Through collaboration, advocacy, applied research, and capacity building, we work with our members to influence the development and reform of public policies and programs designed to move people into the workforce.
CJC moves people out of poverty through employment using on-the-ground expertise, advocacy, and capacity-building.
All people, regardless of where they start or where they’ve been, can access employment as a pathway out of poverty.
