About: SER-Jobs for Progress National, Inc. is a private, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) corporation established in 1965 as a project to address employment and economic concerns and inequities among Hispanics in America. As part of the nation's community organizing agenda to win the "War on Poverty"; SER-Jobs for Progress National, Inc. was designed into the legislative agenda as an example of an effective community based employment and training project that could effectively address these issues. For 40 years, SER had played a key role in the nation's workforce investment system, and is today recognized by the US Department of Labor as the "premier community-based organization serving the employment needs of the Hispanic Community."
SER addresses the education, employment, and economic needs of Hispanics and other underrepresented groups across America. Nationally, SER serves as the administrative arm of the SER Network of Partners (affiliates), and provides assistance to enhance the workforce development capacity of its affiliates through training and technical assistance, program development, research and policy, and fund development. Locally, SER operates community development programs, targeting Hispanics and other underrepresented groups, and also serves the business community by providing qualified applicants for job openings. The SER Network consists of 38 Partners operating in more than 200 offices in 19 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. The SER Network serves more than 1,000,000 individuals annually. SER has a strong partnership with Corporate America through the Amigos de SER Business Advisory Council, which provides technical assistance, financial and in kind support to SER, and employment opportunities for SER participants.
