The JOTF's mission is to develop and advocate policies and programs to increase the skills, job opportunities, and incomes of low wage workers and job seekers in Maryland.
The road to meaningful employment is fraught with obstacles. When one seems to be conquered, another appears in its place.
This is the incessant struggle for the low-wage, low-skill workers in Maryland’s communities.
Each day, JOTF works relentlessly to eliminate those obstacles to meaningful, stable employment through investments in adult education and skills training, effective policy reform advocacy, and cutting-edge research.
By doing so, we’re able to consistently help low-wage workers advance to high-paying jobs and create paths for workers from every possible background to thrive and prosper.
