The Problem

For the majority of residents, formal education and career training stopped at high school, creating a barrier to advancement into positions with higher wages and greater opportunity.

The Idea

The City of Moreno Valley will incentivize and support working adults to pursue education and technical training, allowing them to overcome the “earn vs. learn” dilemma and advance their skills while still providing for their families.


What Mayor Dr. Yxstian Gutierrez is saying:

The unique opportunity will mean that our residents will no longer have to choose between earning a living and receiving an education. They can have both.
