The Education Fund created these videos to highlight the accomplishments of our members and describe our programs and services. We went on the road to interview real members about their experiences using their Education Fund benefits to further their careers and reach their goals. We hope these stories encourage members to go after their goals and take advantage of their Ed Fund benefits!

Your Future is Now

This video features Claudia Narciso-Hernandez (Medical Assistant, Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette, Portland, OR) and Randy Tsuboi (CNA, El Camino Health, Mountain View, CA) who were both excited to take advantage of educational opportunities made possible by the Education Fund through our partnership with their local unions and employers.

Certifications, degrees, and job trainings they wouldn’t have been able to access before became possible at no cost to them through the Ed Fund’s tuition assistance, career advice, and other programs and services.

The Education Fund Difference

Jaclyn Qua (Kaiser Permanente, Portland, OR) and Tannya De Los Santos (Santa Rosa Community Health, Santa Rosa, CA) were able to advance in their careers through education and training opportunities provided through The Education Fund.

Out-of-control student debt keeps too many healthcare workers from accessing new opportunities and saving for the future. But through the Education Fund, eligible members can receive certification and job training with no out-of-pocket costs. Through union/employer partnerships with the Education Fund, and with the support of their employers (such as Tamara Stafford, Director of Talent Development and EWHS at El Camino Hospital), members can pursue career advancement, learn new skills, receive career advice and more.
