1884-2009: Celebrating 125 Years of Promise
Over the past century Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) has stood witness to economic upheavals, shifting political landscapes, world conflicts, amazing technological innovations and triumphs of the human spirit. No matter how time has changed our surroundings, JVS has remained a symbol of strength and hope in the community. Founded as the Employment Bureau in 1884 by the United Hebrew Relief Association, JVS has maintained our 125-year mission with an abiding commitment to helping the most vulnerable and at-risk members of our community. What began as a singular effort to integrate new immigrants into the workforce has evolved into a nonsectarian agency that provides comprehensive employment, educational and vocational services to more than 10,000 individuals a year. Everywhere you go, people tell a story about how they, a loved one, or someone they know have been touched by JVS. The core values that have defined the agency for 125 years are present today—adapted to fit the current marketplace realities. What once began as a small
Sewing and carpentry classes helped immigrants find jobs at the turn of the century. Today clients receive a wide array of skills training and career counseling, job search strategies and support to be competitive in the marketplace.
entity to help the newly arrived find jobs has evolved into a multi-faceted agency with boundless energy and a vision for the future. As we honor our traditions, we integrate the best from our heritage with today’s cutting-edge training and career strategies to give the unemployed and underemployed a competitive edge. We are committed to making a difference by helping them succeed, find hope, and become selfsufficient. Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.
A Message to the Community
Dear Friends and Supporters, 2008-2009 was an interesting and challenging year for the entire world; JVS was not immune. As JVS celebrated its 125-year anniversary, it also experienced the endless opportunity that can come from change. Our new Executive Director charted a course that will allow the agency to face the changing economy and marketplace realities. Internal and external forces made an impact on the agency, requiring immediate action to restructure operations, develop fresh income streams and reduce deficit spending. The JVS Board worked with staff, along with Executive Service Corps volunteers, to develop a Strategic Plan that put the agency on track to evolve our commitment to the Chicago community. Through this process, Board and staff
forged a stronger understanding of each other’s roles. The churning global economy produced urgent need in the community. Responding to the crisis, JVS joined our sister agencies and received a special allocation from the Jewish Federation’s J-HELP Initiative which enabled our agency to offer expanded avenues of assistance to the unemployed and underemployed in the Chicago metropolitan area. Some highlights of this effort include: . The agency saw a 100% increase in the number of professional job seekers served; . The Senior AIDES program served 261 low-income seniors and received ARRA money for an additional 40 workers; . JVS was awarded a three year CARF accreditation for vocational rehabilitation and skills training programs; . JVS tripled its capacity to serve atrisk youth, receiving stimulus dollars for a summer jobs program for disadvantaged youth; . The Duman Loan Fund distributed or provided access to over $1 million in micro-loans to entrepreneurs and small business owners;
. JVS received increased funding under the DCEO Digital Divide Program to expand our Rogers Park Computer Technology Center into Skokie; . The inaugural Strictly Business Networking Luncheon honoring Walgreens was attended by over 270 business leaders, sponsors, government officials and professionals from across all industries. This year, we have learned that out of crisis comes opportunity. The seamless transition to a new direction, the restructuring and repositioning of the agency, the expansion of current programs and new offerings, the synergy of our Board of Directors and staff, coupled with the infusion of volunteer assistance have produced an exciting new paradigm. A special thank you goes to our long supporting Board members for their efforts in fundraising and their diligent service to the mission of JVS. As we look to the future with the support of our stakeholders and the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, JVS looks forward to delivering the best of employment and training services to benefit our clients.

Employment and career development services
This year, JVS saw first-hand the effects of rampant downsizing; job seekers from all economic and professional levels requested service in record numbers. Counseling and Placement staff worked at capacity to serve displaced job seekers. Counselors increased outreach, provided online social networking opportunities and developed niche workshops and seminars to help them through a tough market. This supplemented the individual career counseling and job search assistance providing the tools and strategies for job seeking essentials such as resume writing, interviewing, and networking. After receiving a special allocation from the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago’s J-HELP Initiative, JVS spearheaded the Spring JUF Job Fair for beginning and mid-level business professionals and launched ParnossahWorksChicago, an online job board connecting job seekers and employers.
Ask a Career Expert Job seekers can benefit from half-hour sessions with a JVS Career Counselor. These sessions are held at ten suburban and city libraries, or in our 5 offices and are in addition to support groups and topical workshops. Bridging the Digital Divide Individuals receive computer skills instruction and job readiness training at JVS Computer Technology Centers to become more competitive in their job search. Career Connections for Professionals Transitioning professionals can seek advice from experts who present practical tools and the latest strategies at bimonthly roundtables. CareerTracks Young Jewish adults, who are having difficulty making the transition from high school to work or sustaining a college education, receive assistance to clarify an appropriate career direction, job readiness training and access to resources and employment networks. Illinois SBDC/Duman Microenterprise Center Business education, one-onone counseling, technical assistance and micro-loans are provided to small business owners dealing with a start-up or business expansion. Jewish Employment Network Upper to middle level professionals, who have been adversely affected by downsizing in the Jewish community, receive job search strategies, counseling, and mentoring as well as networking opportunities as they strike out on a job-seeking campaign. Senior AIDES Low-income seniors gain marketable skills working part-time at local non-profit agencies.

JVS success story: giving seniors new hope and second chances
The Senior AIDES program, a Title V program administered by JVS in conjunction with Senior Service America, offers low-income seniors age 55+ a part-time minimum wage position in a local community non-profit agency with the goal of building skills so they may re-enter the job market. It’s a win-win situation for both communities and senior citizens: non-profit groups gain essential human resources and seniors learn valuable job skills that help them reach their employment goals. To enhance their job search, participants also attend a five-week Job Club that offers them guidance on developing a resume, cover letter and interviewing. This program is funded by the Older Americans Act through the U.S. Department of Labor.
When L.G. came to JVS, she was unemployed and depressed. She had just turned 58 and was forced to leave her retail job due to an inability to stand. L.G. was isolated to the point where she had trouble articulating her skills or interests to her counselor. Still, her JVS counselor was able to work with her and refer L.G. to the Senior AIDES Program. There, L.G. was able to receive different job opportunities and began working quickly. She was excited about one organization that worked with individuals who had HIV/AIDS and was placed in a position to help clients find housing and nutrition services. After six months, L.G. was offered a full-time position as a housing specialist. She knew the work ahead would be difficult, but with the help of her JVS counselor, L.G. now had the renewed confidence in her ability to make a difference.

Training and disability services at JVS
For disabled workers and anyone struggling with a barrier to employment, finding work in even a robust economy can be a challenge. Given the recent instability in the job marketplace, the obstacles have been even greater. The Training Division at JVS was ready to help; it responded to the unique needs of disadvantaged populations by restructuring its operations to become more efficient and provided more enhanced skills training and job placement. Clients who were served through the Training Division received specialized support throughout their personal journeys: from the newly installed training modules to practical experiences, to customized placement with guaranteed follow-up, clients received the best available service that fit their needs. For many, JVS services and competitive employment became the bridge to independence and renewed self-esteem.

JVS success story: hands-on learning brings goals within reach
JVS partners with the Veterans Administration’s Service and Distribution Center to provide warehouse services. During the staffing process, a young man called J.D. was brought into the Hines Warehouse Program to train on various jobs, including Pick and Pack, shipping and receiving, and fork lift operations. J.D. had communication and hearing issues, but he met the challenges of the training program. He became very accomplished in the various functions of the warehouse, including how to use the government provided computers and software. JVS management, along with State counselors, assisted in upgrading J.D.’s hearing aids so he could better communicate over the phone. His customer service skills improved vastly to earn him well-deserved accolades. After two years of honing his skills, J.D. was hired as a Vocational Job Trainer to assist others who have disabilities. He is a very valuable asset to both his employer and the new employees who benefit from his unique insight.
Community Based Services at JVS provide a wide range of skills training for individuals to realize a career in the janitorial or warehouse fields. Participants work on site and receive the training, support and guidance they need in the context of a real work environment. This enables them to easily move to a position in a variety of operations. Participants are paid while learning in a classroom setting, at work centers or at various state and federal government sites. Best of all, this hard work pays off for participants: job placement follows the successful completion of this training course.
Enrolling in the JVS Community Based Services program gives trainees much needed wages while gaining essential skills, onsite experience and the confidence to work in a mailroom. 10
