Christian Women’s Job Corps
Christian Women’s Job Corps seek to equip women, in a Christian context, for life and employment.
Christian Women’s Job Corps continues to be blessed by experiencing women moving from where they are to where they want to be! We continue to have great support from the Tennessee WMU, from our association, and from wonderful churches who support us with meals and contributions to the clothes closet.
We continue to offer Parenting Classes twice a year in spring and fall. This has been a real service to the community since DCS and others often require parenting in their case plans. However, many classes offered by other entities are expensive. Because of the generosity of so many, we are able to offer this ministry at no cost. Nineteen parents earned certificates of completion. We have been requested to offer a summer class. If anyone is interested, please contact us.
In 2017, 11 women graduated, and all those who are able are now working. One “star” graduate is very typical of the transformations we see. When class began, J.O. would not even make eye contact or talk with other participants. She had never worked and didn’t have a diploma or GED. Through participating in CWJC, she certainly moved forward. We discovered she writes beautiful prose and has a clever sense of humor. She is now working full time at the Chattanoogan Hotel.
Christian Women’s Job Corps is an extraordinary privilege and responsibility. We greatly appreciate your prayers. People interested in mentoring should contact Jane Everett at 706-224-2908.

We seek to empower women to become confident, motivated individuals, prepared for self-sufficient lifestyle, impacted by the love of God,and equipped to give back to the community. We are so appreciative of the strong support from our local churches, Tennessee mission funds, individuals, and volunteers.

What happens in our classes?
Each term of twelve weeks includes training segments pertaining to employment such as how to locate potential jobs, resume writing, interview skills, workplace behavior, and appropriate dress. Women are also taught life skills such as wise decision making, setting SMART goals, and creating a mental and spiritual state of hope and healing. They will be introduced to Biblical women role models and God’s promise for their lives. Participants are paired with women mentors for encouragement accountability, and assistance in setting and reaching their goals
