JVS Mission

JVS Los Angeles offers hope and opportunity to our diverse community through job training, mentoring and education, combined with expert career guidance, employer partnerships and comprehensive resources, transforming lives and empowering individuals to achieve dignity and independence. 


A vibrant community in which all people can achieve their career potential and, in turn, uplift others.


  • JVS' intention is to provide people with the ability to earn their own living.  All services, programs and related business enterprises are focused toward that end.
  • JVS is a caring presence, infused with Jewish values and available to all individuals and groups in need of job search skills, training, career guidance and other work-related services.
  • The Jewish values of respect for the individual, the imperative of ethical action and the assumption of responsibility to "repair the world" infuse all aspects of the organization's operations.
