Project ARRIBA is an El Paso-based economic and workforce development initiative, incorporated on December 16, 1998, as a public, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. The mission of Project ARRIBA is to provide long-term high skilled training and case management services to eligible El Paso County residents who require the occupational skills necessary to access jobs in hard to fill demand occupations that pay a living wage of at least $11.50 per hour, with benefits and a career path. It is built on the premise that a true employment and training initiative must provide a comprehensive, integrated program of occupational, motivational and workplace skills training.
Our organization aims at improving the Talent Force within the unemployed and underemployed community of El Paso. We sponsor individuals into demand occupations like nursing, healthcare, education (teachers) and information technology and place them into great careers here in El Paso which benefits all. We believe that a good education will lead to great employment which will increase the economic development of our great region.
We invite you to explore our website for information about our mission, in-demand careers, funding, orientation schedules, and much more.
