Helping people find jobs is pretty cool. There’s a reason that I’ve been doing it for the past 5 years. I’ve built a nice list of success stories, but there’s no way that I “created over 218,000 hours of employment and generated $2.5 million in wages” in 2010 like Chrysalis did. They’re a Los Angeles, CA based non-profit that is “dedicated to creating a pathway to self-sufficiency for homeless and low-income individuals by providing the resources and support needed to find and retain employment.” Employment solves all kinds of societal and individual problems, but creating jobs isn’t nearly as easy as politicians make it sound. Luckily, Chrysalis has developed programs that help people turn themselves into desirable employees. It’s the next best thing.
Chrysalis’ Facts & Figures page blows me away. Last year they helped 1,700 people put themselves into jobs. Chrysalis does this with an average of $2,000 invested in programming per client, and those client will typically end up making considerably more than minimum wage. Chrysalis has been at for 25 years now, and they’ve served more than 42,000 people. You don’t need to look much deeper than the numbers, but you may want to poke around their Client Center to get a better sense of Chrysalis’ programming. If you like what you see, you’ll want to check out Chrysalis’ Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Development Systems & Database Admin, and the position looks like a great fit for a new or recent grad.
