Growth Sector builds alliances, teams and programs that retrain American workers to respond to specific community and business needs. We bring together education and job training and the workers who need both, with the employers who want to hire them. We conceptualize programs, develop regional strategies and raise funding to launch and sustain initiatives to create and fulfill jobs. Growth Sector trains veterans for employment in the utility industry, educates dislocated workers for roles as math and science teachers and prepares disadvantaged youth for “green collar” jobs.
Growth Sector partners with the leading educational institutions, local, state and federal government agencies and the top employers in California. Founded in 2004 as Gruber & Pereira LLC, Growth Sector is a San Francisco-based non-profit organization run by founders Dave Gruber and Caz Pereira.
