Career Institute helps young adults in San Bernardino County find jobs or training. The organization identifies and pays for short-term occupational training, works with youths on work readiness, helps them find a part-time job and then assists them with college enrollment or other post-secondary training.
The Institute serves the city of San Bernardino, the west end of San Bernardino County, Victorville, Barstow, Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear communities.
