Gifted with creativity, we write symphonies, cook, manage personnel, build websites and unclog drains. With our work comes meaning, dignity and resources. When work is lost, families and communities suffer and personal dignity often breaks down.
Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.- Theodore Roosevelt
Since Convoy of Hope was founded in 1994, we’ve worked shoulder to shoulder with caring individuals to transform communities. In 2014, we’re building upon that tradition with the launch of Made to Work —a program to help people find jobs and build better lives.
Made to Work brings together hiring companies, keynote speakers and community partners, with a focus on providing valuable personal connections at free events. We’re making the search for meaningful work more accessible.
Navigating the complex job market can be daunting alone. Yet, as we found with our community outreach events, a community of passionate individuals can accomplish much and make lasting impact. When we tackle joblessness together, individuals find quality employment, families prosper, neighborhoods change, schools improve, communities grow and the economy thrives.
Here’s what the typical Made to Work event looks like …
HOUR ONE | During the first hour of the event, a speaker will present topics tailored to the local job market and job seeker.
HOUR TWO | In the second hour, hiring companies will highlight their company’s culture, core values, and open positions.
HOUR THREE | The last hour of the event will include an opportunity to network face-to-face with hiring companies, the speaker, community partners and peers.
