The City of San Antonio has partnered with Workforce Solutions Alamo, Alamo Colleges, Project Quest, and other workforce development agencies to offer free workforce training and education to San Antonio residents who have been negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in the hardest hit industries of hospitality, food service, and retail (based on unemployment claims).
This new program, which builds upon existing City workforce strategies, seeks to guide participants on a recommended pathway to gain employment and/or increase their earning potential. Following a skills and career assessment, participants may begin high school equivalency preparation, short-term, long-term or on-the-job training. Qualified participants are eligible to receive stipends of $15/hr (at 30 hours maximum and 6 hours minimum per week) for actual time spent in an approved training program, up to a maximum of $450 a week.
To begin the intake process for this program, please call 311 Customer Service at 3-1-1 or 210-207-6000. 311 is available seven days a week from 7am-7pm.
