NORTH AMERICA

Our first North American WORK 4 A LIVING center was started in Wichita, Kansas, followed by a second center in Carson, California last year.

We help young professionals who are looking for a career to find work, develop skills, perform job searches, start businesses, and connect with employers. Our facilitators are experienced, empathetic professionals who have helped thousands of job seekers attain the resources and develop the skill sets needed to get a job, keep a job, and get promoted.

We also partner with others in the community such as churches, relief groups, development groups and state agencies, to provide our services to the marginalized: human-trafficking victims, foster kids and returning citizens, to mention a few. We collaborate with like-minded organizations to address adaptive challenges that people face, in order to give them the best opportunities.

In addition, WORK 4 A LIVING partners with employers to develop their labor force. With an emphasis on excellence, financial literacy, work ethic and character, we increase employee retention.
