Jobs for Life aims to see all people flourishing in their relationships and work. More specifically, we provide a platform for churches and ministries around the country to engage their communities to help individuals find and maintain meaningful employment. Our Biblically-based work readiness curriculum emphasizes job search skills, character, relational mentoring, and creating an ongoing community of mentors, instructors and employers. This network greatly improves their chances of finding meaningful work and achieving long-term success.
“The best way parents can get started teaching their kids about money is to find out what your child is interested in, such as goals and what they want to be, do, and have in their lives. You can then tie any money lessons you teach or money conversations you have moving forward to their list of things that are important to them, meaning they’ll be more receptive in receiving the information instead of just thinking you’re babbling on about stuff that doesn’t relate to them.”
Nobody’s born a financial genius. But as you grow, you get the opportunity to learn from those who’ve done it before. Just as you start to feel there’s a few financial boxes you’ve checked off, it might be time to swap chairs and become the one giving advice versus receiving it. Whether they’re nieces and nephews or your own little ones, answering financial questions and helping kids understand money is a skill all its own. And it’s one worth practicing.
