“We value the opportunity to team up with HCC to help meet a crucial workforce need in our economy.”— Ann Reinert, Global Philanthropy, JPMorgan Chase & Co.
HCC Community Partners Make a Difference.
As a port city that serves as a transportation and logistics hub for the region, Tampa has a growing need for welders. The local and national demand was outpacing HCC’s welding program capacity, and thankfully a strong community partner emerged. Since 2015, the JPMorgan Chase Foundation has provided $1.25 million to fund an expanded welding program and support the growth of the Advanced Transportation Training Center. Program graduates earn essential industry certifications on their way to jobs with salaries in excess of $40,000 annually.
In 2016 JPMorgan Chase invested $1 million to support HCC's Advanced Transportation Technology Center.
