“The best part of Work Life is how the classes start from and reinforce the importance of relationships. Not only are people being transformed by God through this process, but they are also staying connected through alumni meetings.

Work Life helps us go beyond mere skills training and address the whole person. It points people to Jesus, and it helps them look inward at their past so they can prepare for their future.”

Work Life is better than any other jobs curriculum I’ve seen. It helps our participants actually deal with areas of their lives that have held them back. They come to us hoping to get a job, but they get so much more: relationships, connection to a community, and confidence.”
