CityBuild Academy

HOPE SF has partnered with the Office of Economic and Workforce Development to ensure that HOPE SF residents receive job training opportunities and are prepared for the construction jobs created by the revitalization. If you are a HOPE SF resident without prior construction experience, you can learn the skills you need at the CityBuild Academy.

Residents with experience in the construction trades can find work with HOPE SF by connecting with CityBuild’s placement and referral services.

RAMP Program
People without a High School diploma or GED do not immediately qualify for the CityBuild Academy, but HOPE SF is committed to ensuring that everyone gets the training needed to prepare for work. If you are 18-24 years old, check out the RAMP program.

JOBS NOW! is a program that puts unemployed and underemployed parents into good jobs, and pays the employers the cost of their wages through September 30, 2010. For more information see the San Francisco Human Services Agency’s JOBS NOW! webpage.

OEWD Training Programs

Need a job but not in construction?
The City’s workforce system, coordinated through the Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD), offers a range of jobs and job training opportunities for HOPE SF residents.


OEWD Sector Academies

OEWD’s Sector Academies and training programs serve San Francisco residents who are unemployed or underemployed, and/or have been dislocated from their jobs, and/or meet the priority populations as defined by the Workforce Investment San Francisco Board - which includes public housing residents. These training programs provide job preparation, vocational training, and other services in order to develop a pipeline of skilled and prepared workers for industries facing staffing shortages and/or identified as having short-or-long-term job growth.
