What is the women’s program about?
CJC’s Job Prep for Women Program equips women with the tools to obtain and maintain employment which leverages their God-given skills and talents. We work with our students strengths, identifying their talents, sharpening their skills, and encouraging them towards God’s intended path.
This six-week job prep program, held in-person and via Zoom, includes completing your resume, job applications, confidence in talking about your gifts, interviewing for a specific job, money matters, and one-on-one basic computer training if you need it. Our curriculum prepares you for today’s workforce and life’s challenges, and builds character that employers are looking for. Computer training is self-paced and you and your mentor agree on a schedule. Check out the program Outcomes Map and a listing of activities.
