JOBS for Oregon’s Future (JOBS: Job Opportunities and Basic Skills) is the state’s employment and training program for people on public assistance. In addition, JOBS can help low-income families avoid the need for welfare.
Through a contract with the Oregon Department of Human Services, BMCC provides JOBS Program services in Umatilla County, including employment assessment, work-search assistance, and training in workplace basics and life skills. Clients receiving help through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program may be eligible for JOBS Plus services, which places persons in limited-duration training positions with private employers. As part of BMCC’s Department of College Preparatory Programs, the JOBS Program works closely with basic skills offerings as well as with other BMCC educational services in order to help JOBS students meet their goals.
The JOBS Program is located at BMCC Hermiston, BMCC Milton-Freewater, and the Oregon Employment Department in Pendleton. For more information, please call the JOBS Program manager at 541-938-4082 x3172.
