JOIN Inc. Training Nevadans for Careers is a 501(c)(3) community benefit organization in Northern Nevada with the goal of helping Nevadans break the cycle of poverty through education, job training and other occupational services aimed at helping individuals reach financial stability and personal success. They connect businesses, schools, government agencies, and other nonprofits with employment-ready career seekers to bridge the gap between workers and careers.
Through JOIN, career seekers can explore different careers and take assessments that will help discover a career path specifically suited to their personality and lifestyle.
