Digital Divide: Part of the Solution

Luis Gutierrez (pictured right) called into Mother Lode Job Training's Calaveras office

requesting to use our computer and internet to complete his pre-employment testing. Luis had recently applied with the Calaveras Unified School District (CUSD) for both Driver and Custodian positions, and needed to do the required pre-employment training. Luis does not own a computer or have Wi-Fi at his residence, so MLJT Calaveras set appointments for him to come in and use our computer lab.

Luis had 13 virtual trainings he needed to complete prior to his second interview, and after 2.5 days of computer lab use, was able to complete all of his required training. MLJT was able to print out his training certificates and give him a folder to keep all of his documents.

Luis had his second interview with CUSD on July 1, 2021 with the intention of full-time employment with Calaveras Unified School District.

Each one of our centers is equipped with Wi-Fi, printer, fax and telephone for contacting employers. In addition, our library is complete with career information and handouts, information on local colleges and training providers, sample resumes and community resources. Individuals do not need to be enrolled to use our job center computers. If you are someone that needs the means and equipment for assistance with job attainment, call your local job center to schedule time to come in and use our computer lab.

Sonora Hiring Event on July 8th & 9th


With the state of California re-opening, many employers in the Mother Lode have been searching for qualified applicants. Staff at Mother Lode Job Training (MLJT) saw the need and developed a plan.
