On Friday, May 9, 2014, hundreds of supporters came together at the Santa Clara Convention Center to celebrate JobTrain’s 30th Annual Breakfast of Champions, where JobTrain students were honored for their hard work and determination.
Special thanks goes out to San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh for his inspirational video greeting to all of our guests: “The JobTrain center is an amazing place where the concept of defeat and the words ‘I can’t’ are nonexistent. JobTrain students and the organization are tough, they embrace hard work, personal sacrifice and enthusiasm and learn from their mistakes. That’s how we all become smart, by learning from our mistakes. JobTrain staff and students help one another believe in each other and take care of each other. They keep their eye on the ball and they go for the win no matter what the odds!”
