Jobs Partnership is proud to announce another new site for LifeWorks training. Starting this year, we will be delivering our free, 12-week, life-changing course at the ACE School in Parramore. The OCPS Academic Center for Excellence opened in 2008 and serves ages Kindergarten through 8th Grade.
We are thankful to the many Jobs Partnership champions who have worked hard to see the dream of a new site become a reality. In partnership with Eric Stites, Pastor at NewCity Church in Parramore, we are working to bring life and work skills to the community through Biblical teaching.
Sarah Bruner is the outstanding Team Lead for the new site and she is ready for her students! With a background in HR (along with a heart of gold and energy for any task), Sarah is the perfect leader for this group. Sarah has been a Jobs Partnership instructor for many years and her students are always inspired by her wisdom and strength.
We appreciate our business partner, Wells Fargo, for making this dream a reality. Through the NeighborhoodLIFT® initiative, Wells Fargo has made a commitment to revitalization efforts in Parramore.
Wells Fargo’s A.J. Adamczack, Home Mortgage market manager for North and Central Florida shares, “We want to assist local nonprofits as they continue their great work of implementing programs that help address housing affordability, workforce development and small business growth in our region.”
Wells Fargo is not only supporting Jobs Partnership through a financial contribution that is changing lives, but they are actively volunteering as well. Local Wells Fargo leaders and employees are serving our students during Mock Interview Night when LifeWorks students will practice interview skills and receive feedback from businessmen and businesswomen in the community.
On Tuesday, February 25th at 6:00 PM, a new class of Jobs Partnership students will begin a journey toward the job they were created for. It is an exciting time in JP History!
