Job and Life Skills Training

The goals of CWJC of NWA are to work with unemployed or financially challenged women in our community to:
- Be a source of support and encouragement;- Offer training in computer skills that will improve the ability to obtain meaningful employment;
- Provide interest assessments that will guide into making informed career decisions;
- Provide classes in life skills that will improve the ability to engage with others more successfully, retain employment, and improve family relationships;
- Provide job seeking skills to improve the ability to successfully secure a job;
- Provide a mentor to walk alongside as an additional resource;
- Enable participants to regain confidence in themselves and their ability to learn;
- Enable participants to establish habits of setting and meeting "SMART" goals related to physical, spiritual, and emotional health
- Enable participants to secure learning resources and continued education;
- Enable particpants to break the cycle of generational poverty;
- Enable participants to overcome situational poverty;
- Encourage particpants to give back to the community by "paying it forward;" and
- Equip partipants to continue to seek programs in the community in order to continue to learn and grow.

CWJC established its training program based on a community assessment which surveyed:
- various agencies and current programs offered in our community;
- input from business owners and what they saw lacking in applicants applying for jobs; and
- local organizations that serve those in low-income or poverty and they needs they see.

Based on the community assessment CWJC of NWA elected to offer basic computer skills, along with keyboarding and to offer Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook. CWJC also included classes that assist in developing the "soft skills" involving character development such as dependability, goal setting, healthy relationships, etc.. 10-week terms meets twice a week for three hours each class. We continually evaluate and adapt the program to the needs of our participants and to the areas that will best assist them in gaining meaningful employment as well as quality of life.
