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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

teaching classes, befriending students, hiring graduates, playing a leadership role for the organization.

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

seeing the power of God transform lives from hopelessness to hope, from joblessness to successful employment, from being disconnected from community to being connected to a loving, supporting community

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

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
