Proteus Inc. welcomes you to our new website. The site is a continous work in progress, so check back often for updates. If you notice any problems, please contact us.
Since its inception in 1967, Proteus, Inc. has been in a continuous state of evolution, adding and expanding services as the changing needs of the workforce and local communities emerge. Initially an adult training center serving low-income residents through educational services, Proteus has materialized as a nationally recognized full service agency that provides a wide range of services to a diverse customer base. Most fitting the name Proteus originates from Greek mythology as a sea god which means “versatile”, “mutable,” “capable of assuming many forms.” The adjective word protean has positive connotations of flexibility, versatility, and adaptability.
Today, Proteus administers approximately 40 different programs, which range from Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funded adult, youth, and dislocated worker programs, to programs related to energy conservation, emergency supportive services, foster family services, youth services, migrant child care, community and youth centers, child development programs, and California Department of Education (CDE) programs.
Proteus is committed to providing quality, excellence and continuous improvement in the daily operations of our organization. Customer satisfaction in the services we provide is Proteus’ approach to doing business. One goal is to deliver services that meet or exceed our customers’ expectations. With this in mind, over 300 full-time staff in over 30 offices is readily available to assist job seekers, employers, and all other Proteus stakeholders.
With pride, Proteus seeks funding from federal, state, local, public, and private agencies that will enable our organization to do what we do best: train, educate, and nurture a self sufficient customer.
