2021 Qualcomm San Diego Employee Giving Committee Selects NSDI for $12,000 Award

Filed in Donor News, Recent Blog Posts by on July 7, 2021

In June 2021, The Qualcomm San Diego Employee Giving Committee (SDEGC) selected NSDI for a $12,000 award aimed at employment facilitation for vulnerable populations. The award is part of the SDEGC Virtual Pitch Night, which harnesses the passion and interests of Qualcomm employees in impacting positive social change in their communities.

NSDI established LearnMore », a state-approved vocational training school in 2019 to provide in-demand healthcare training and employment facilitation to marginalized communities, including refugees, immigrants, and other displaced/underserved populations. The school offers accelerated healthcare training and supportive services that lead to in-demand healthcare careers and increased employability in the U.S. healthcare job market. To date, 64 participants have participated in the Nurse Assistant Training Program. In 2021, LearnMore became an approved test site for the NNAAP Certified Nursing Assistant exam and currently facilities the state certification exam for all students who complete the state-approved nurse assistant training program.

The support from the SDEGC and Qualcomm will provide financial scholarships for low-income individuals impacted by the current COVID-19 contraction, including loss of income, reduced income, or school closure. The support will kickstart another component of NSDI STEM program to include a coding program for youth and displaced workers that want to explore a career path in technology. NSDI coding program will expand diversity and provide linguistic and culturally proficient workers to San Diego’s technology sector.

NSDI gratefully acknowledges the support from SDEGC and Qualcomm.
