“CWJC has been an important stepping stone in my life,” said Sheila Anderson, mother and grandmother, at her graduation from a nine-week session of Christian Women’s Job Corps of Lee County. “It’s been inspirational, rejuvenating and motivating. I came to CWJC to improve my business administration skills. The computer classes helped me learn word-correcting skills and how to use spread sheets in Excel. I’ve also improved my skills in speaking and writing.”
Sheila’s daughter, Brianna, joined her mother because of a determination to improve her job skills. Both women learned about CWJC from Sheila’s other daughter and Brianna’s sister, Brandi, who graduated from CWJC in the spring of 2019. Brianna said she found the most helpful class to her was budgeting because it improved her money management.
“With CWJC, I also have better communication and computer skills,” she said. “I can now reach my goal of a better job opportunity.”
Sheila, like her two daughters, finds that she is “much more confident in myself, my work ethic and job performance. I can offer my new employer these qualities and be a great asset to their company.”
A Celebration Service was held Nov. 12, 2020, to honor the two women who persevered through extraordinary times with social distancing and Zoom meetings to experience the Mission Statement of CWJC: “To equip women through Bible Study and job readiness classes in a Christian environment conducive to change and growth from the inside out.” For more information on how to become a participant or volunteer with CWJC, contact Neeley Caldwell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 334-821-0591.
