Jobs for Life is a global nonprofit organization that engages and equips the local Church to address the impact of joblessness through the dignity of work. By mobilizing a worldwide network of volunteers committed to applying biblically-based training and mentoring relationships, Jobs for Life helps those in need find dignity and purpose through meaningful work.
Weekly: JfL classes usually meet twice per week over an 8-week time period. Class sessions last approximately two hours. Sites need mentors (called champions) – one per student – who attend classes with alongside their students. Instructors may teach all sessions or break the material up among a team of instructors. Volunteers may also provide administrative assistance, prayer support and fill other leadership roles, under the direction of an overall Site Leader (often a volunteer as well). Some sites offer meals and childcare, too.
One time: Business panelists, community resource presenters, and mock interviewers are
needed once per 16-session class. Champions may fill these roles as well.
