Helping people find empowerment in their own abilities — discover your path and power.
PIC works with hundreds of families and individuals to help them become economically self-sufficient.
Partners in Careers (PIC) is a nonprofit organization that strives to create self–sufficiency through specialized job training and employment services. This is accomplished by helping people break through barriers to employment, which often means addressing generational poverty.
PIC serves low-income parents who want to create stability for themselves and their children, refugees and immigrants looking for a new life in the United States, homeless veterans wanting to reintegrate into civilian life, families recovering from domestic violence and young people striving to create successful career and life plans after high school.
PIC connects job seekers to workforce skill trainings and jobs in partnership with local businesses and community members focused on building a strong, healthy community
PIC’s staff works with hundreds of families and individuals each year to help them become economically self-sufficient through efforts that:
- Strengthen individuals and their families
- Lead with Equitable and Inclusive practices

PIC is a 501 (C) (3) organization, a non-profit that is funded primarily by local, state and federal government whose annual budget is $2.2 million.

PIC has developed partnerships with the private sector through the State of Washington Career Jump Program where local business can receive a staff member with subsidized minimum wages for three months. The business must commit to hiring the staff member at the end of the three months.
