UPLIFTING HUMANITY THROUGH THE DIGNITY OF WORK
A LIFETIME OF MEANINGFUL WORK
We currently conduct classes at several North Orange County homeless shelters in eight week cycles (a total of 32 hours). The course combines teaching soft skills (résumé-building, mock interviews, etc.) with character and identity formation.
The combination of Jobs for Life instruction, extended mentorship, and business partnership allows our students to thrive and experience renewed dignity, hope, and purpose.
CONNECTION MATTERS, TOO
We believe that as our mentors and JfL team build a safe and nurturing community for our students, they will develop healthy relationships, gain self-confidence and hope, and acquire meaningful employment.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
“Champions” (volunteer mentors) commit to walk with our students for up to 6-months. They journey alongside students during class, help them work through the material, and develop deeper relationships with them. They foster relationships outside of class and provide relational connections that encourage long-lasting student growth.
BUSINESSES PARTNERS (EMPLOYMENT)
We are looking for employers and business owners who will partner in our desire to prepare men and women for meaningful work. Partners interview our graduates for potential job openings, provide mock interviews, inspirational messages, and mentorship.
VOLUNTEER + BECOME A CHAMPION
Join a team of dedicated and passionate volunteers committed to walking alongside those experiencing homelessness.
CHAMPIONS / MENTORS: These are the lifeblood of Jobs for Life! We need men and women willing to provide support, community, and encouragement to our students.
LEADERSHIP TEAM: Jobs for Life requires site leadership, champion coordinators, class facilitators / instructors, and student intake & oversight.
PRAYER TEAM & MORE: We are also looking for volunteers to be part of a prayer team for each class cycle.
PARTNERSHIPS WITH CHURCHES & ORGANIZATIONS
