Joseph Tauber Scholarship Program Helps Make Dreams Come True
A college education can be the key to career success, but growing financial costs can make it an expensive and often burdensome venture. The Joseph Tauber Scholarship Program (JTSP), funded by the 1199SEIU National Benefit Fund and administered by the 1199SEIU Child Care Corporation, works to ease the financial pressure on 1199SEIU members who want to send their children to college. Financial awards vary based on need, and can help students with tuition, books and other expenses that can arise when pursuing a college degree. More than 8,000 students have been assisted by JTSP, and have graduated from programs at Cornell University, Howard University, SUNY Binghamton and Columbia University.
Every year, the YMP offers teens ages 15 to 17 invaluable opportunities to explore careers in the healthcare industry.
Kimberly has participated in Child Care Funds youth programs for most of her life, but her two years in the WorkForce 2000 Program have been the most impactful.
Students graduate from the WF2 Program with tools that prepare them for a wide range of careers in the healthcare industry.
FALC students put their learning into action by participating in a march to raise awareness about the growing climate crisis.
WorkForce 2000 and the Youth Mentoring Programs, allow teenagers to explore career interests by giving them early access to work experiences and professional development.
The survey was designed to measure the impact of 1199SEIU Child Care Funds programming and gain insight into the scope and diversity of members’ needs and their experiences with the programs.
