Review for Jobs For Life Inc, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I serve with Jobs for Life (JFL) as lead team member, mentor and writer. In my church, we generally have a more memtors than we do students. The Jobs For Life program offers students bi-weeky encouragement and confidence building that empowers students to overcome their roadblocks and obtain gainful employment. The JFL workboook contains lessons from the Bible that apply to character overcoming obstacles. Additionally, we provide The Career Key to assess students' interests; provide resume help, mock interviews; and offer community resource and buisness panels. In addition, we keep in touch with our students to track their progress and offer additional encouragement.

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

seeing students' confidence increase by leaps and bounds

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

exceptional. we usually have two mentors per student. The enthusiasm and dedication is phenominal

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

equip every unemployed person in the US with career development services

Ways to make it better...

all students graduated and got jobs

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Attracting and offering classes to middleclass and upperclass students.
