What we provide

Mission Neighborhood Access Point
Comprehensive educational, workforce preparation and asset-building services by MEDA and partner organizations enhance San Francisco’s workforce delivery system to address the needs of young adults (17-24 years of age) and adults.

Our sector-based training

MEDA exclusively offers three training programs that are designed to provide entry points into the retail, financial and technology sectors. Each program incorporates the below items into its curriculum:

Assessment
Assistance in determining skill level, interests, aptitudes and abilities, as clients begin to define/redefine career goals.

Job Coaching
Individual planning and case management services that help clients meet their unique educational and occupational goals.

Job Readiness Training
Training services that prepare job seekers for work experience and employment, focusing on honing resume/cover letter writing, interview and job search skills.

Financial Capability Integration
Financial education classes and coaching that build the skills necessary to achieve economic self-sufficiency.

Job Placement
Services that support job seekers to conduct an effective employment search, plus direct connections to appropriate employment opportunities.

Retention Services
Follow up support, to ensure economic success, for clients who are already working and/or in educational activities.

Supportive Services
Referral assistance to guide eligible clients to other supportive services: childcare; transportation; asset building; and other workforce programs. As a result of our service integration efforts, over 80% of MEDA staff believes that we have already improved our direct services. Clients are referred to programs at partner organizations or within MEDA.
