COVID Generates Innovation and New Partners

 

When COVID hit, LifeWorks classes were underway at seven sites in Orange County with plans to add two more this Fall. The impact of COVID has caused us to innovate and create new ways to deliver our mission.

This semester, we will host two virtual classes and two in-person classes. We are excited to welcome The Kingdom Church as they partner with New Life Ministries to bring a NEW class site to the Pine Hills community. We’re also happy to welcome Heart of Mercy Ministries as they partner with New Life Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church. Thank you First Presbyterian Church Orlando and Lifebridge Church for supporting the Mercy Drive community.

Our Community Resource and Career fairs will shift to a virtual Showcase, currently being developed by our team. A new model has been created for LifeWorks participants to get in front of employers with employment opportunities. Business partners are invited to host JP Tours where small groups of participants can preview a job opportunity. They will learn about the organization, the culture, application process, and career growth opportunities. Businesses can then choose to offer on-the-spot interviews.

We look forward to these new changes to prepare people for life and work with Biblical principles. Together, we’re helping people bridge the opportunity and skills gap to connect to better jobs!
