Jobs for Life

Jobs for Life Training provides the ability to connect to and care for root issues of the heart and provide practical building blocks to a healthy character. Through a strategy that combines work readiness training, Biblical principles, and volunteer mentoring, Jobs for Life teaches key workplace essentials to find and keep a job with training topics that include:


Attitude, respect for authority, conflict resolution, teamwork, perseverance, effective communication, integrity, excellence, vocational planning, job search techniques, building a resume, interviewing skills, and customer satisfaction.

Jobs for Life in an interactive, biblical-based curriculum designed as a 15 session / 8-week training course (2-hour sessions). Students are encouraged to take ownership of what they learn through:

  • Class instruction and discussion (JFL Instructors)

  • Small groups ( JFL small group discussion Leaders)

  • One- on One (JFL Champions- Mentors)

  • Individual study

  • Business and Community involvement

In addition to the training, each student has a JFL Champion – a mentor or group of mentors – who provide support during the training and who model in their personal lives the life principles taught. The impact JFL champions have on students is significant, as students: remain in JFL longer, increase odds of securing a job by 73%, and increase odds of retaining employment by 56%.

Through this program we hope to:

  • Engage people who are broken and vulnerable at their point of need

  • Transform lives beyond temporary hand out assistance

  • Deliver a valuable service to the local business community

  • Provide a life-changing solution to a devastating community problem

  • Engage Volunteers in purposeful outreach
