Real transformation through JfL cannot be done without a group of people—a community— joining together to help men and women experience the dignity of work.
This community consists of businesses and non-profits, to investors, volunteers, and students. From leading and participating in a JfL class to investing resources and hiring JfL graduates, each level of involvement is crucial in our mission to engage and equip the Local Church to address the impact of joblessness through the dignity of work.
In the middle of the community is the church—the church is the platform and cornerstone of the JfL class. With everyone coming together as a community through the Church, Jobs for Life becomes a platform for building relationships—and this is what changes lives.
