Our Mission

Join the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce Foundation in its mission to provide support for work-based learning and financial literacy programs to benefit young people and others seeking employment or professional advancement in our community. This work is done with and through the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and Civic Association. We work with education, community, non-profit and business partners as we help provide career exploration and real-world experience for local students.

You did a fantastic job matching Evan with OneVeg World, a restaurant whose management gave him a chance to improve his life skills and communication.  He really felt a sense of responsibility and belonging at his job.  All the students are heading back to school with a new found confidence, and while not all of them will continue in the career that the internship offered, the life skills they gained are beyond valuable.
