I have been involved with Jobs for Life at my church for almost three years as a Site Leader, Business Relations lead, and as a Mentor. we just started our sixth class and I have seen many lives changed by the program. I have seen several of our students develop the character and confidence that they need to move from homelessness and unemployment to becoming productive members of the community.

I have served in the Jobs For Life ministry for over 10yrs and words can't explain the effectiveness of this organization. It is by far one of the most effective organizations that I have ever seen! Over the years, we have watched hundreds of people radically change their lives through the principles taught in the curriculum. It is exciting to be a part of something so effectual and life changing.

Drastically reduce the number of unemployed people in any major Metropolitan area! I have personally witnessed people transition from being homeless to successfully employed. The results are incredible and life changing!

I've been involved with Jobs for Life in 2 capacities: as a donor and as a facilitator of a JfL group in my community. As a donor I know that Jobs for Life is exactly what it claims to be, and that it uses its funds effectively, efficiently, and as expected. As a facilitator, I know that the material is absolutely outstanding. Our participants developed break-through confidence in their ability to seek and finds jobs. They learned interview skills; they prepared excellent resumees; they learned how to overcome barriers; they learn how to handle criminal records and periods of unemployment in the interview process; they strengthened their commitment to values such as punctuality and integrity; and they grew closer to the Lord. It was life-changing... it changed me too! Powell Harrison Roswell, GA

I have been teaching Jobs for Life in Women Residential Alcohol & Drug Programs, Jail & Prison Ministry,Community Corrections and with a Youth Summer Program. It is an incredible program combining business skills/training and using a faith-based approach through Biblical principles. We have graduated almost 300 men and women in one year. It is so exciting to see so many of them succeeding in their jobs and realtionships; seeing the transformation in their lives. I even hired one of my graduates as my assistant in the non-profit ministry that I am Co-Director of. Awesome Awesome Program

I had the pleasure of taking care of children while their parents attended the JfL classes at Trinity Baptist Church in Raleigh, NC. I was invited to attend the graduation ceremony after the parents had completed their coursework. Words cannot describe what I experienced - students expressing how they have changed in their attitudes toward themselves and toward work, mentors coming along side the students to walk with them as they seek employment, and a church willing to take a different, more long term approach toward alleviating the effects of poverty and joblessness. While I thought I was simply babysitting, I was actually helping to change the lives of the parents and, hopefully, their children.

I am director of CWJC and CMJC with Prison Ministry in Rankin County, MS. I use the Jobs for Life Curriculum in all my Job Readiness classes which includes Prison Classes. It is easy to follow and the JFL staff is always helpful with advice. Here is what a student says: JFL has helped me to relate to everyday life to the stories in the Bible. It has helped me to practice doing the right think and having integrity in all my dealings with others and in the workplace. Also, how to dress while going on interviews and the best way to present my resume and myself. I highly recommend Jobs for Life!

The Great!

all my classes and my administrative time with the staff.

I've found the Jobs For Life organization to be an invaluable ministry tool. Its capacity to consistently empower, envision and champion our organization to do meaningful work in the field is without question one of the reasons why we keep working with the underserved community. God bless the folks at Jobs for Life!

I have been involved with Jobs for Life since its inception. There are many fruits from the labors of this organization, but perhaps the most dramatic and lasting is the transformation of people's lives who go through the training. They certainly learn a lot of practical information pertaining to work and how to succeed at the workplace, but they also become engaged in a new community of friends dedicated to their success and welfare.

The Great!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

passionate, dedicated, loving, sacrificial and kind

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

develop a bigger footprint of operations in the US and beyond, and perhaps have a measurable effect on the poverty rate

Five years ago I was mentoring a young woman diagnosed with multiple mental illnesses. She was told she'd never be able to hold down a job. She knew she was intelligent and didn't want to continue to take money from SSI and welfare. She enrolled in a Jobs for Life class. Learning that she was a child of God & that He had a plan for her life, inspired her. The people around her inspired her. She now works fulltime and often refers to Jobs for Life and the confidence she gained there

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing the dramatic positive changes in those who enroll in the Jobs for Life classes and how it changes their lives

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

deeply committed to the students and the mission and modeled such a strong faith in God and His love that students could believe that God loved them.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be in ever city in this country and beyond because its model is based on local volunteers and organizations. Additionally,the curriculum could be expanded to serve youth, people with other languages, etc.
