In March of 2017, WorkFaith Birmingham celebrated our 41st Workshop Graduation over the past three years. During those three years, we been able to empower over 300 graduates with the skills and ethics they need to gain and retain employment. Through our two-week workforce preparation workshop and job search support, over 80% of our graduates have been able to overcome their employment barriers to obtain employment during this time. President Keith Stanley attributes the success rate to “a highly effective staff, a solid HR curriculum designed to empower adults in transition to develop the skills and values they need to succeed, and God’s grace at work on behalf of our graduates as they grow in their faith.”
WorkFaith Birmingham began with a goal of empowering adults who want to work, who need an avenue to succeed, who need to develop the soft skills necessary to obtain and retain employment, and who desire to thrive in life as they grow in their faith and enjoy support from the Body of Christ.
Thanks to many new partnerships, WorkFaith Birmingham expects to serve 200 adults over the next 12 months! Will you consider helping us empower others in Birmingham to get a job and keep a job? A monthly donation of $30 per month can sponsor one person to attend our workshop!
