Want to help change a life?

You can! 

Helping people gain and keep meaningful work aids not only the worker, but his/her entire family, and the community.

Jobs for Life is a training program to help young adults and adults from unemployment to employment. Students are composed of parents and graduates of children enrolled in Loaves & Fishes. It teaches the skills they need to find and hold a job and to improve their lives. Each course has 16 two-hour classes.

DATES: October 13 – December 10 (we will take the whole Thanksgiving week off)

DAYS AND TIMES: Tuesday and Thursday 8:45 – 11:00
LOCATION: Classes will be at the Loaves and Fishes site at Milner Church, 1950 New Bern Avenue. (About ¾ a mile from Wake Med Hospital towards downtown )

During 8 weeks and 16 sessions, we will cover such topics as understanding my value, identifying and overcoming roadblocks, perseverance and positive attitude, conflict resolution, effective communications skills, excelling on the job.
We already have instructors and food providers. We very much need volunteers in two areas:
  • Mentors – you work one-on-one with students to encourage and support them and to help them stay on track. 
  • Child Care – to take care of at least one child. 
Interested? Have more questions? Call or email Susan Lane: 919-417-9334

Thanks for your support!
