LifeWorks Grads Celebrate New Opportunities

LifeWorks spring semester just finished, and more than half of the men and women who graduated from the 36-hour training course already have experienced job-related success. Fifty-seven percent of graduates – 38 people! — report that they’ve found a new job, received a promotion at their current job or enrolled in technical skills training.

Graduates gathered to celebrate family members and friends on May 25 atWashington Shores Church of Christ with a reception and graduation ceremony marked by applause, cheers, laughter – and live music provided by theJones High School Alumni and Community Jazz Band. The 66 graduates include Yanetsy, who says of her LifeWorks experience, “LifeWorks has impacted my life spiritually and professionally. I am looking at myself with a different view.”

We are thankful to the many people who make LifeWorks possible, including the dozens ofvolunteers who facilitate the program at training sites across Orange and Seminole counties. They coach participants, lead classes, provide dinner, review resumes and conduct mock interviews. These partners hosted LifeWorks classes this spring:
