We believe in partnership for collective impact in our community.
The need for community with others is at the very core of who we are as people. That’s what Jobs Partnership is all about. Our Partners are the reason why we are making an impact not only among the men and women we are upskilling from underserved communities, but among the very people and organizations that are co-laboring with us. Learn more about our Partnerships, and consider becoming one. After all, serving together is what we were made for.
We provide a proven way for churches to mobilize their congregation to serve in the community and train up leaders to collaborate with a diverse group of Church Partners to answer the Biblical call to serve others.
We train and equip Volunteers to work together as a team to facilitate the LifeWorks classes, provide mentorship to Participants, and even work on special projects and events. A variety of hands-on roles are available, each utilizing particular gifts and skills.
Our network of Employers represent a range of industries from healthcare to advanced manufacturing. As one of our Employers, you can recruit and hire qualified Graduates, participate in our exclusive Job Fairs, offer specialized training and provide Volunteers and Instructors.
Community organizations, educational institutions and government agencies can refer Participants to the LifeWorks Training, provide valuable resources, and access to accelerated skills training that leads to a better job for our Graduates.
Financial Partners include individuals, businesses and churches like you, who give generously to make it all possible. We call them our Transformation Team, because they are investing in changed lives in underserved communities throughout Central Florida.
AdventHealth Hires LifeWorks Grads
Fourteen LifeWorks grads are embarking on career-path jobs at AdventHealth Orlando this summer! The healthcare leader has partnered with JP to hire up to 75 LifeWorks grads in 2022 as patient care technicians (PCTs). The full-time job starts at $15 an hour, includes benefits and is a first step on the nursing career path.
JP Graduate Services Manager Donna Kalala says, “This job puts our participants on a career path in the medical field where they can make a huge impact in the AdventHealth community. The PCT pathway also gives our participants stability in their careers — and that stability carries over to their families and in generations to come.”
As part of the recruitment process, JP hosted an all-day basic life-support training class for participants applying for the job (see photo).
AdventHealth’s Central Florida division is a longtime JP partner. JP President Marc Stanakis says, “The staffing shortage in healthcare has created an incredible opportunity for us to reach deeply into our community and upskill the men and women we serve for a career path that will provide economic mobility for years to come. And who better to do that with than our missionally aligned partner AdventHealth?”
