Project HireUp Summer Cohort Graduation
Images of hope, celebration and pride were seen this past Friday, June 30th at The Summit located across from Canyon Hills Church, as Summer 2023 BC Project HireUp Graduates walked across the stage. This makes the 9th cohort graduation which kicked off in Spring 2020 in response to the homeless crisis in the community. Graduates went through an 8-week intensive program held at the CityServe Educational Collaborative Center and walked away with a Basic Office Skills Certificate from Bakersfield College, a Personal Development Certificate from CityServe, a Financial Literacy Certificate from Bank of America, and endless employment opportunities. Efforts like these are not done alone and require many internal and external partners to get accomplished. We are proud of our students and the village behind them!
