"Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a covenant between equals."-Father Gregory Boyle
Sustainable Alamance has need for all kinds of volunteers. Listed below are a few examples of ways that you can help restore individuals to their rightful place in the community.
Jobs for Life--Instructor:
Through Jobs for Life training, your service, compassion, time, and commitment to excellence
will play an integral part in God’s work. Lives will be transformed through meaningful, mutually
respectful relationships, the application of Biblical principles, and the acquisition of practical
work readiness skills.
□ Serve as an encourager, showing a warm, caring and accepting spirit
□ Build relationships based on respect, understanding, dignity and trust
□ Demonstrate leadership bathed in humility and accountability
□ Season everything with prayer and grace
□ Acknowledge your own brokenness and need for Christ’s saving grace We trust this will be
an extraordinary time for you personally as you permit God to work through you to provide
hope to those seeking productive employment and a meaningful life.
Jobs for Life--Champion:
- Provide support, encouragement, counsel, and truth with grace to the student on a regular basis. Never
underestimate the importance of a Champion!
- Work closely with your student. Serve as the primary person to evaluate his or her comprehension and life
application of the material taught in the course. Monitor his or her progress to insure that he/she is on
track for JfL graduation.
- Take responsibility to ensure that the student attends class, completes all assignments, make-up session
and continues to work toward completing all graduation requirements. Ask the student for weekly
progress updates and hold him/her
accountable for their work.
- Championing someone is more “how can I help you?” rather than “what should I teach you?” Championing is not lording over
someone or being a parent.
- Be a good and sincere listener. Make it possible for the student to open up to you and reveal possible
pains that may hinder progress. Be a sounding board for the student, as he/she confronts various
obstacles to implementation or has to reconsider earlier decisions and /or change course.
If you're interested in getting involved on a more regular basis please complete a volunteer application and we will contact you within 72 hours.
In addition, we know there are people with special skills who could make a great contribution to the organization but we haven't thought of what they might be. Do you have special skills or talents that we could use for the betterment of Sustainable Alamance?
