Many in our community are struggling to keep their heads above water. You can help ensure that their hard work translates into a job that pays a living wage.

Donations to SJI help a low-income individual:

  • Be the first person in his or her family to attend college and
    earn a college credential.
  • Train to become a welder, a job that pays well and offers benefits
    and advancement.
  • Learn to write a resume, interview for a job, and acquire workplace
    skills that businesses want.
  • Receive the food, housing, transportation, childcare or other support
    services he or she requires to be successful in training or on the job.


Your contribution opens doors to living-wage careers for individuals who are making the commitment to improve their lives through education and training.
