3 years and 90 students Later!
This job training program is proving to be one of the most rewarding and amazing ministries that Bridges of Love has been able to launch in partnership with the local Church. So far, we have covered topics such as:
- Understanding my life journey and my value as an employee
- Overcoming roadblocks to success
- Succeeding through adversity
- Effective communication skills and customer satisfaction
- Being responsible for my actions
The real testimonies, however, are coming out of the mouths of our mentors and students. One student said:
“I look forward to this class all week. I go to church on Sunday, but by Wednesday, I just need to be filled up again – that’s what Jobs for Life is for me.”
One of our mentors said of the class:
“I have found the Jobs for Life program to be valuable to both students and mentors. I have already seen growth in the students and I, personally, have had a growing experience. My partner/student has shared emails, and books, and prayer requests, and prayers that have touched me. I see this Jobs for Life journey as improving my job as an employee, but also my “job” as a Christian, my “job” as a parent, my “job” as a neighbor, and other “jobs” that are for a lifetime. I am thankful for the opportunity to participate.”
Isn’t God so amazing? The work is just beginning!
