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
