The DIGNITY of WORK
Jobs for Life
Productive work that utilizes our gifts affirms dignity
More than 20% of youths in Latin America are neither studying nor looking for work. This percentage is much higher in marginalized communities. Our 16-week Jobs for Life course prepares people to work, guiding them through the development and execution of a vocational plan appropriate to their situation. Participants graduate with interviewing skills, a resume, letter of recommendation, and a short-term and 5-year plan, plus a lot of practical experience looking for work. Eighty-five percent of graduates find work during or shortly after the course, or continue their education as a part of their vocational plan.
