News Release

Moreno Valley's Employment Resource Center to Become Comprehensive "America's Job Centers of California" Office

Free Workshops to Enhance MoVal Workforce

For immediate release: January 9, 2021

To provide more job-seeking and employment-recruitment services directly to Moreno Valley residents, the Mayor and City Council have approved an agreement with federal, state and county partners to designate the City's Business & Employment Resource Center (ERC) as a comprehensive America's Job Centers of California (AJCC) office.

Since it opened in 2009, the Moreno Valley ERC (12625 Frederick St.) has operated as an AJCC Access Point, a satellite office for the Riverside AJCC. The ERC's upgrade to a full-service AJCC office will make it easier for Moreno Valley job seekers and employers to access job-training, career-counseling and employment-recruitment services by providing all of them locally, without having to be referred to the Riverside AJCC.

"Despite the pandemic, the City Council and I believe it's important to keep the ERC open to the public," said Dr. Yxstian Gutierrez, Mayor of Moreno Valley. "Ours is one of the very few Employment Resource Centers that have been open continuously since the pandemic started."

"Congratulations to the Moreno Valley City Council for approving the transition of the City's Employment Resource Center to become a designated America's Job Center of California!" said Dr. Angelo Farooq, Chairman of the California Workforce Development Board. "This timely AJCC designation will help serve the growing needs of families in the broader region to secure quality job opportunities. I commend the successful collaboration between the State, County and City to streamline this process amidst the pandemic crisis."

As it transitions to a comprehensive AJCC office, the ERC is being renamed the "Moreno Valley Business and Employment Resource Center, an America's Job Center of California" (BERC).

Centro de Recursos de Empleo de Moreno Valley Será Oficina Integral de los "Centros de Empleo de América de California"

Para proporcionar más servicios de búsqueda de empleo y contratación de empleo directamente a los residentes de Moreno Valley, el Alcalde y el Concejo Municipal aprobaron un acuerdo con socios federales, estatales y del condado para designar al El Centro de Recursos de Empleo de la Ciudad (ERC) como una oficina integral de los Centros de Empleo de América de California (AJCC).

Desde que abrió en 2009, el ERC de Moreno Valley (12625 Frederick St.) ha operado como un punto de acceso del AJCC, una oficina satélite del AJCC de Riverside. La actualización del ERC a una oficina AJCC de servicio completo facilitará que los empleadores y los solicitantes de empleo de Moreno Valley accedan a servicios de capacitación laboral, asesoramiento profesional y contratación de empleo, proporcionándolos todos a nivel local, sin tener que ser referidos a Riverside AJCC.

"A pesar de la pandemia, el Concejo Municipal y yo creemos que es importante mantener el ERC abierto al público", dijo el Dr. Yxstian Gutierrez, Alcalde de Moreno Valley. "El nuestro es uno de los pocos Centros de Recursos de Empleo que ha estado abierto continuamente desde que comenzó la pandemia".

“¡Felicitaciones al Concejo Municipal de Moreno Valley por aprobar la transición del Centro de Recursos de Empleo de la Ciudad para convertirse en un designado Centro de Empleo de América de California!”, Dijo el Dr. Angelo Farooq, Presidente de la Junta de Desarrollo de la Fuerza Laboral de California. “Esta designación oportuna del AJCC ayudará atender las crecientes necesidades de las familias en la región y asegurar oportunidades laborales de calidad. Felicito la exitosa colaboración entre el estado, el condado y la ciudad para apresurar este proceso en medio de la crisis pandémica ".

A medida que pasa a ser una oficina integral del AJCC, el ERC pasa a llamarse "Centro de Recursos Empresariales y de Empleo de Moreno Valley, un Centro de Empleo de América de California" (BERC).
