What Makes CWJC Different From Other Job Readiness Programs?

Each participant is involved in Bible study. Participants are also matched with a trained Christian woman who will be a Journey Partner as she travels the road from dependency to self-sufficiency. CWJC offers a "hand up" not a "hand out." 

Does every CWJC participant get a job?

Honestly, no. CWJC is a Christian life- and job-skills training program. No woman is guaranteed employment after completing a CWJC program. Each program does strive to prepare each participant for work in her community.
