How It Works

Jobs for Life is a global nonprofit organization that engages and equips local churches to address the impact of joblessness through the dignity of work. JfL training is a 16 session, 8 week course that teaches Biblical truths, develops character and fosters a supportive community that will equip students for work and life.

Course topics include both character traits (attitude, respect for authority, taking responsibility, perseverance, and integrity) as well as skills (vocational planning, job search techniques, resume building, interviewing skills, effective communication, and customer and employee satisfaction).

Students must attend class, be on time, dress appropriately, complete all homework assignments and embody the principles of Jobs for Life Training. Students cannot miss more than three classes, and missed work assignments must be completed.
