A nonprofit in Visalia was awarded $25,000 by a Wal-Mart Stores Inc. program to help give people job training.

The company's California State Giving Program awarded the grant to Proteus Inc., which administers about 50 different adult, youth, and dislocated worker programs that range from energy conservation to foster family services. The nonprofit will use the grant to establish one-on-one coaching, workshops and basic courses for people to gain technological job training.

The program awards grants twice a year to local organizations that serve the community and make a significant social impact.
