What To Expect
CWJC offers a variety of classes during our 12-week program. We begin each day with a devotional time, followed by an hour of in-depth Bible study. During the semester, students complete book studies on Choosing Forgiveness, 8 Steps to Freeing the True You, and Boundaries.
Our participants then move to a computer skills class, where they learn or improve their skills on word processing, spreadsheets, and Power Points. They learn how to apply for jobs online and how to write a resume. Later in the semester, they will write a speech to be given at graduation.
Next, our participants have an hour of Lifeskills classes, presented by volunteers from our community. The first four weeks concentrate on “Self”. Classes include information on home and personal safety, nutrition, fitness, personal finances, making smart choices, setting realistic goals, and the Workforce Commission.
The next four weeks are focused on “Others”. Classes include information on safe relationships, boundaries, cultural awareness in the workplace, conflict resolution, dangers of social media, information about community resources available to our participants, and world religions.
The last four weeks focus on business. Classes include business etiquette, making a good first impression, business ethics, dressing for success, being bold for Christ in the workplace, leadership skills, Biblical work ethic, customer service, and preparing for an interview. Our students participate in mock interviews and do a two-day internship at various area businesses. They also complete a community service project, and tour the Cleburne campus of Hill College.
At the end of the semester, our students go through a graduation ceremony and receive a certificate to honor all the hard work they’ve done and all they’ve accomplished.
