Job Description

Volunteer - Volunteer

Mission Statement: Motivated by the love of Christ, we promote abundant life by providing holistic services to women and men affected by unplanned pregnancy.

Jobs for Life (JFL) is a nationally used model, rooted in faith with belief that there are solutions to systematic barriers hindering meaningful employment to many. JFL focuses on the core causes of unemployment, underemployment, and disengagement with work by calling on local churches, businesses, and organizations to Flip the List.

To empower our male clients to engage in their God given gifts and talents in the work force, AGR needs an army of strategic volunteers who are diverse in age, vocation, and race, to walk alongside them. We are piloting JFL with our male clients hoping to expand to all clients in the future.
