CAMBA's comprehensive Workforce Development and Refugee Services programs annually provide over 3,800 low income community members with employment, education, training, benefits access, financial literacy and English language services. CAMBA specializes in assisting those with special barriers to employment including low skilled workers, long-term unemployed, immigrants and refugees, limited English speakers, formerly homeless, seniors, formerly incarcerated, trauma survivors and victims of human trafficking. These programs are performance-based, and success is measured by meeting enrollment, employment placement, training, retention and case management goals. As an affiliate of the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, the Matching Grant Program provides successful participants with a cash grant for up to three months, equal to or greater than a Public Assistance cash grant, as an incentive for going to work and avoiding public assistance. Participants receive intensive case management, job placement and English language training. The Refugee Services programs provide job training, placement and transitional support services to refugees and asylees during their 60 months of eligibility in the United States to help with any impediments to employment and self-sufficiency.

The minimum qualification of this position is Bachelor's degree (e. g., B.A., B.S.W.) and/or equivalent experience. Bilingual (Mandarin, French, Spanish Nepali and/or Tibetan preferred). Experience working with refugees and/or asylees preferred.
