14th Annual JVS Strictly Business Luncheon

Last Thursday, I had the honor of presenting an Inspiration Award to Staff Sergeant Steven Walker at Jewish Vocational Services' (JVS) 14th Annual Strictly Business Luncheon.

Walker (pictured with me at right) received help from JVS after returning from his military service in Kuwait. Through a program that serves veterans, JVS arranged for Walker to receive job training in the health care field. He recently completed his training and internship, and is now receiving job placement assistance from JVS.

Founded in 1930, JVS operates 18 training and counseling centers in Southern California, providing comprehensive career services to more than 30,000 people of all faiths each year. JVS serves a wide range of clients from at-risk youth to seasoned professionals to veterans to refugees and immigrants.
