Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services is proud to announce that it’s currently taking applications for its Job Club educational course. Beginning January 8th and running until the 31st, classes will be held each Tuesdays and Thursday from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) has a history of community involvement that has proved their dedication throughout all these years.  Father Daniel Madigan founded SFBFS in the basement of his Oak Park church back in 1976.  This whole organization was purely volunteer based work at first. Over time, the organization grew to 40 paid staffers and a volunteer force of over 5,000.  Now SFBFS has many locations distributing food and clothing.  It is now not only limited to that, as SFBFS now offers adult education, child development and technology training.

This program is designed to to help participants find a job or further their career.  The workshops are made possible by Christina Rogers of Angeles Career Consulting.  This 4-week series of workshop will focus on everything from  skills of networking to interviewing techniques and even cover letters. Job Club also offers an adult education program consisting of a GED tutoring lab with small classroom instruction. For those whose native language is other than English, Job Club has ESL instructions in a classroom setting.

Classes will be held at Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services’ Education & Technology Center, at 3308 3rd Avenue in Sacramento.  For  more questions feel free to contact or (916) 456-1980 for Dan Allen, The Adult Education Program Manager.
