Jobs for Life Begins October 1st

We are excited to announce the launch of our Jobs for Life program starting October 1, 2018.

Jobs for Life is a program that helps prepare men and women for meaningful work through honest relationships, mentoring, work-force development training, and an ongoing community of support.

If you or someone you know is interested in participating in Jobs for Life, we ask that you complete this Jobs for Life Application.

No one will be turned away after completing this application.

Please email your application to Kelly Jeffers at kjeffers@urbanmission.org or send your application to 301 North 5th Street in Steubenville, OH 43952.

There is no cost involved in the program.

 

For those interested in volunteering for Jobs For Life, here’s a sneak peek of the key roles needed to make this program a success:

Church Members: Commit to relational ministry, coming alongside men and women and helping them focus on their identity in God, build character, and create sustainable community. Church members can volunteer in the class, filling roles such as Instructors, Mentors, and Prayer Leaders.

Businesses Leaders: Use their talents, resources and influence to partner with Jobs for Life. They offer job opportunities to JfL graduates, participate on class panels, share JfL with their networks and invest in deeper ways.

Investors: Generously give of their resources to help further Jobs for Life’s mission. They understand the power of focusing on work as a means to end poverty and the importance of building relationships.  A $50 gift towards Jobs for Life will help sponsor one student this year.  DONATE HERE.

Job Seekers: Jobs for Life is open to all. If you or someone you know is unemployed or underemployed and searching for a way to provide for themselves and their families, please consider Jobs for Life. A special informational session for potential students will be on Thursday, September 13th at 10am and 5pm.
