The WorkFaith Connection
Join Serve Houston for our April Discover Gathering at The WorkFaith Connection. Our Discover Gatherings are designed to create a learning experience at a local non-profit that is making a great difference in our city. Register for this hands-on tour of The WorkFaith Connection and get a glimpse into their work and the people they serve.
We at Serve Houston get excited about The WorkFaith Connection—they’re in the business of transformation. WorkFaith is a unique organization that empowers disadvantaged job seekers to find and keep meaningful employment. Since 2006, they’ve helped thousands of low-income and under-resourced clients gain the skills and confidence they need to change their lives through work, with graduates earning $28 million in wages in 2014. And that’s not even counting the restored relationships and community involvement that emerges from changed inward attitudes.
WorkFaith’s model is built around an eight-day bootcamp. Students get training on how to interview, fill out a job application, represent their strengths while speaking honestly to their weaknesses, and more. Professional job coaches and mentors give inside advice on skills like how to identify the hidden job market. And students are supported and embraced by an empowering, motivated staff. It all culminates in a ceremony where students gain employment and ring WorkFaith’s signature bell.
The WorkFaith Connection is our Spotlight Organization for the month of April. We encourage you to join them in making a difference – and in impacting our city.
Tickets are required for all participants. Register today!
