About Us

The Career Development Center (CDC) is a division of Jewish Family & Children's Service (JF&CS), a non-profit, non-sectarian, multi-faceted social service agency founded in 1937.

Founded in 1984 to help the unemployed workers affected by the fall of the steel industry, the CDC develops innovative programs to meet the ever-changing needs of the Pittsburgh workforce.

Over the years, we have helped more than 16,000 job seekers with their employment needs.

The CDC continues to meet the needs of the region's diverse workforce by serving the entire community. From recent college graduates to mature workers, from Pittsburgh natives to new legal immigrants, from those who have just experienced a layoff to people who just want to change careers, from small businesses to large corporations.

Individual and organizational transitions are tough. The CDC helps you navigate them successfully.

Services are provided and referrals are made without regard to race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, place of birth, sex, sexual orientation, familial status, age, handicap or disability. Various programs have specific eligibility requirements that must be met for participation.
