Center for Employment Training
We are partnering with the Center for Employment Training (CET) of Watsonville to provide temporary jobs to agricultural workers and other local residents facing unemployment. The trainees will be working at PVLF five days a week for up to a year.
We recruited PVLF program participants and volunteers to work with us through this training program. We are proud to welcome four trainees to our team: Gabriel Gonzalez, Maria Genis, Eduardo Gallegos, and Cecilia Cervantes. They are assisting Kitchen Manager Maria Gonzalez five days a week, helping to prepare and serve meals, wash and sanitize dishes, and clean and maintain our dining facility.
The trainees have quickly integrated into our kitchen team and are helping our lunch program run smoothly every day. It is a huge help for us to have some daily volunteers, and, in turn, the trainees have an opportunity to learn new job skills, build their resumes, and explore a career in food service. We thank CET for partnering with us through this program.
