The program serves as a pathway to certification and employment/volunteer positions within the public mental health system once participants finish the class and take and pass the Medi-Cal Peer Support Specialist Certification exam.

Past Programs

Workforce Accelerator Program

A Road to Self-Sufficiency was a holistic job training program for those in the county over the age of 18 who were seeking employment, and U.S. citizens or non-citizens authorized to work in the U.S. This program was thanks to a grant from the California Workforce Development Board.

Kitchen Apprentice Program

Our Apprenticeship Program trained and mentored those seeking a career in the food industry or entrepreneurship opportunities focused on food. The 6-month program equipped individuals with the knowledge and skills to develop and launch a small food business or to join the larger food and hospitality industry. Apprentices were matched with food industry professionals specializing in baking and butchering and received a chance to learn invaluable business and marketing skills.

Driver Academy

Community Action Marin's partnership with Vivalon Rides offered an opportunity for a career as a professional, trained, and licensed commercial driver. With free tuition, participants were able to begin a new career with job security driving commercial vehicles and supporting the community in the process. The Academy provided a combination of in-class and field training to help those in the program successfully pass DMV written exams and behind-the-wheel field tests, and provided CPR and First Aid certification and job placement assistance.
