Job development grant given to Ohlone

Ohlone College has been awarded a two-year Job Development Incentive Fund (JDIF) grant, by The California Community College Chancellor's Office of Economic and Workforce Development. Funds will provide training on a no-cost or low-cost basis to participating employers who create employment opportunities.

Implemented by Ohlone College with community-based partners and the private sector will assess needs then design, develop and deliver training for those seeking employment in the biotechnical industry. The goal of this program is to enable individuals to enter the field as highly trained specialists and include opportunities for low-income and CALWORKS recipients to gain self-sufficiency

Dr. Ron Quinta, Dean of the Math, Science & Technology Division, will head the program in partnership with state and local economic and workforce development entities including the Alameda County Workforce Investment Board, CalWorks, community-based organizations, One-Stop Centers, Newark Chamber of Commerce, regional biotechnology industry, and the private sector.

For additional information about the grant and the project, please contact Josie Sette at 510-979-7952
