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 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!

all my classes and my administrative time with the staff.
