Jobs for Life

The Jobs for Life (JfL) class consists of 16 sessions and teaches timeless biblical principles concerning work and the ways those principles are applied in the marketplace.

The class takes the students on a journey – a journey to discover who they are, their unique value, and the principles they need to overcome roadblocks in their lives. Centered on the Bible, the course covers lessons learned from the lives of characters such as Joseph, David, and Ruth, the teachings of Jesus’ parables, and examples of real world heroes. In addition, the class equips the students with core work readiness skills such as presenting their 60 second commercial, developing a vocational plan, building a resume, learning effective interviewing skills, and many others.

Every student is provided a job coach who is an individual committed to helping the student succeed. In addition, other volunteers engage with the class to create a unique environment of community during the training. Through this support system, students are connected to resources previously unavailable to them and provided with enduring friendships they can access over a lifetime. In addition to job coaches, Jobs for Life partners with businesses that invite students to intern with them or provide in class instruction.

Are you a business owner interested in partnering with us? We are looking for businesses willing to provide in class instruction or positive work experiences that allow students to exercise what they learn in class.

Interested in volunteering as a job coach or mentor? You can guide and mentor men and women in the Marshall area and even build lasting friendships.
