Restoring Work: Jobs Preparedness Training

Low-income people all over the U.S. long for work.

You can help them find it—and flourish in it.

Why Work Life Training?

The Chalmers Center trains churches and ministries in Work Life, a biblically integrated job preparedness curriculum designed specifically for people from backgrounds of generational poverty. In addition to practical job skills, the curriculum empowers participants to recognize that God is at work in the world and that their jobs are a way of participating in that work.

To determine whether Work Life is a good fit for your context, consider auditing the online portion of the course, read our training agreement and visit our FAQ page.
