What is the JobRedi Foundation and what does it do?
JobRedi Foundation (JRF) wants to help YOU build a better future!
The JobRedi Foundation was started by the Cortopassi Family Foundation in 2014 via a partnership with the Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans.
JRF’s goal is to help students who have overcome tough times and want to earn a vocational certificate and get a good job with the opportunity for growth!
To help students pay for a vocational certificate, JRF established a grant program (up to 4 semesters /$10,000 per student maximum). Grants are awarded to students who fit the eligibility requirements, with emphasis on those with demonstrated perseverance, overcoming adversity, and personal responsibility.
Recipients earn grant funds based on their personal commitment to the JobRedi Program by: attending class, participating in JobRedi workshops, maintaining passing grades, and meeting with JobRedi staff.
The JobRedi Grants renew each semester for students remaining in good standing and progressing toward earning their certificate.
