Description

The Bread Project’s (TBP) mission is to empower individuals with limited resources on their path to self-sufficiency through skills instruction, on-the-job training in our social enterprises and assistance with establishing a career in the food industry. Our training program targets specific food industry sectors showing growth, lower entry requirements, and wage levels consistent with living wage ordinances in the Bay Area. Our focus on technical skills, on-the-job training, work readiness instruction, and placement assistance helps trainees successfully transition to the workplace. Follow-up services and alumni supports help graduates not only retain their jobs, but work towards career objectives.

All our students are low-income (100%). We serve two main populations. These two groups are refugees, asylees and displaced persons (20-30%) and the re-entry population, ex-offenders and those with criminal records (30-40%). Our clients seek to rebuild their lives. The Bread Project provides the home where they receive training, a positive environment and a strong network of support. TBP helps put them on their path to employment. All students are assisted in their career endeavors for a period of 15 months after graduation. Today over 90% of graduates secure employment - on average within 33 days of graduation!
