Rose Schnitzer Manor continues to reap the benefits of its innovative, work-based learning model for caregiver training. The Manor’s work-based learning program is affiliated with Jobs to Careers, a national initiative that helps frontline health care workers access the skills and credential opportunities they need to advance their careers — at little to no cost to the workers.
To highlight the successes of Jobs to Careers, The Hitachi Foundation, one of the funders and founders of the national initiative, developed a video series “Reflection on Jobs to Careers”. The series contains a video highlighting the successes of Rose Schnitzer Manor and features three of the Manor’s employees:
- David Kohnstamm, Administrator
- Linda Bifano, Director of Health Services
- Manolita Surban, Resident Assistant
Rose Schnitzer Manor’s work-based training program was funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Hitachi Foundation through the national program office of Jobs for the Future. This educational training program was implemented in partnership with Portland Community College.
