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

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a mentor in the Men of Valor prison ministry program in Nashville. I mentor men in prison as well as when they are released. I have seen first hand in prison the class curriculum and how it builds confidence as well as personal skills. I have also seen how the JFL skills are put to use when men are engaged in a job search as well as handling their everyday activities. JFL doesn't just feed a man a fish, it teaches him to fish and as a result enables him to become a contributing member of society,his family and his faith.

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