JOBS for LIFE News
The Jobs for Life class takes the students on a journey – a journey to discover who they are, their unique value, and the principles they need to overcome roadblocks in their lives. Centered on the Bible, the course covers lessons learned from the lives of characters such as Joseph, David, and Ruth, the teachings of Jesus’ parables, and examples of real world heroes. In addition, the class equips the students with core work readiness skills such as presenting their 60 second commercial, developing a vocational plan, building a resume, learning effective interviewing skills, and many others.
Along with the training, every JfL student has a JfL champion – a mentor or a group of mentors – who provides the student friendship and support both during the training and once the student is employed. 95% of finding and keeping a job is “who you know.” Many JfL students do not have a “who you know network” that can advocate for them and provide support to help them overcome barriers in their lives keeping them from success.
The next Jobs for Life class at Dorcas Ministries will be March 1 to April 26, 2018 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.
You can find the JfL Application at this web site: http://dorcas-cary.org/services/job-training-center/
