Nothing beats a good job.
Not just work, but a decent job, a job you enjoy, a job that pays a living wage for a hard days work.
Take a look at this group.
Talk about happy!
This is Central Dallas Ministries' latest construction trade skills training class at their graduation celebration upon the completion of 13 weeks of hard work and focused, hard-skills training.
CDM's WorkPaths initiative joins forces with OAI and the Construction Education Foundation and Brookhaven College to provide this training.
The result: most, if not all, our 18 graduates in this class will go to work immediately for contractors that will pay them between $12 and $16 an hour to start.
Happy, happy faces!
Accomplishment that counts. You should have seen the faces of the family members who witnessed the graduation.
That is real hope.
By the way, a huge thanks to the folks at the Riverside Church of Christ in Coppell, Texas. The brand new work clothes and boots that our students are sporting were provided by this great group again this class. Thanks so much!
