Every kid has a dream….but for many, their dreams are dying. Today, 20% of young people live in poverty. In many of our neighborhoods, dropout rates exceed 50%. Drop outs are 8 times more likely to go to prison than those who stay in school.
What can we do? How can we stem the tide? What will reach the next generation to instill in them hope and purpose for a bright tomorrow? How might we keep them motivated?
The Powered for Life (PfL) curriculum from Jobs for Life provides churches, rescue missions, prison ministries and other Christian organizations the tools necessary to train and equip 16-23 year old disadvantaged youth to obtain meaningful employment and the
abundance of God’s provision.
