Jubilee Jobs Summer Challenge 2017
During the months of July, August, and September, Jubilee Jobs has been working to raise a total of $150,000 to help over 100 applicants, including young adults go to work. A small group of donors has committed $50,000 to be matched by $100,000 in gifts from individuals and faith communities during these summer months.
On the months of July and August, Jubilee Jobs’ placed a total of 58 applicants. Kevin Thomas Jr., who is in his early 20s, needed help getting an appropriate haircut and finding professional clothes. With a background in the food industry, Kevin wanted to find a job in this field. Few weeks after being a part of Jubilee Job’s job preparation and placement program, Kevin got a job at Sligo Creek Nursing home. He now works with the Dietary Supervisor at the nursing home. Kevin wants to develop his culinary skills. His supervisor likes him already, and wants to guide and help him excel in his role. Thank you Sligo Creek Nursing home!
Similarly, Jubilee Jobs’ helped Tillahun get a job at Colonial Parking on August. Hailing from Ethiopia originally, Tillahun has been in the U.S. for almost four years now. He was previously working as a driver. Currently, he works at the parking garage in Colonial Parking. Tilahun expressed that he likes his new job so far. Tilahun wants to specialize and develop a skill to become a competent candidate in the job market, and he hopes to bring his family from back home to the U.S.
There are 2 more weeks until summer is over. Help us reach our goals to support more applicants like Kevin and Tillahun by making a donation here!
40% of our revenue is from donors like you. Your donations make it possible for Jubilee Jobs to continue its core mission of helping anyone who needs, wants and is able to work to find an appropriate marketplace job. Your gifts will be matched and worth twice as much during this month. Make a difference today!
