Review for JOBS FOR LIFE INC , Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
