J.P. Morgan Chase Foundation

– Transitioning Disadvantaged Youth into Quality Jobs –

J.P. Morgan Chase Foundation aims to enable more people to contribute to and share in the rewards of a growing economy. In Malaysia, J.P. Morgan’s grant-making strategy is focused on workforce readiness programs, taking significant steps to help narrow skills gaps, more effectively integrate industry requirements into training curricula and ensure that underserved youth have sustainable employment pathways into the country’s fast-growing industries such as mechatronics, electrical and electronics and manufacturing. In 2018, J.P. Morgan launched a partnership with MySkills Foundation (MSF) to help at-risk youth gain relevant skills for gainful employment. Aside from MSF, current grantees include Science of Life Sciences 24/7, Junior Achievement Asia Pacific and the Soroptimist International Club of Damansara. Across Asia Pacific, the firm’s workforce readiness initiatives have helped to create nearly 50,000 new jobs, placements and internships, leveraging our colleagues’ engagement, mentorship and volunteering efforts to reinforce program delivery and impact.

J.P. Morgan actively seeks to use the expertise and commitment of its employee to maximize the impact of its philanthropic investments and help nonprofit partners better serve their communities through a variety of programs including Good Works and Technology for Social Good. In the past year, more than 16,500 J.P. Morgan employees in Asia Pacific contributed over 78,000 volunteer hours through Good Works alone. In Malaysia, J.P. Morgan employees volunteer in programs run by grantees by providing training workshops, lectures, mentorships and motivation exercises to boost the confidence of the youth and prepare them to transition into the workforce
