About JobsRVA

A partnership of several nonprofits and churches have led to the creation of a new initiative in Richmond, Virginia called Jobs RVA!  STEP, Into The Neighborhood, Boaz and Ruth, Saving Our Youth, and Northside Outreach Center along with Spring Run Presbyterian Church, Third Church, Life Transformation Church, and more have gathered together to implement a strategy to engage the Church of Metro Richmond in equipping our neighbors to obtain, retain and thrive in a job.  This is being done through an established biblically based job preparation curriculum called Jobs for Life.

Classes are currently being held with people from Gilpin Court, Highland Park, the Richmond City Justice Center, the Veteran’s Hospital and more! We are looking to expand this effort across the Richmond area in partnership with the Jobs for Life Headquarters in Raleigh, NC.

We are please to announce…

In 2017, eight sites graduated a total of 101 Graduates and
68% are Employed (excluding those incarcerated)!!!
Praise God!

I believe I speak for all my partners when I say that we are proud to be able to offer this service to the Highland Park area. Seeing people get jobs and change their lives and the lives of their families is an amazing thing to see. Honest hard work is something God seeks from all of us. I’m proud of the men and woman who took these steps to improve their lives. Each one of our graduates has agreed to model their lives and exhibit the character of Christ in all that they do to the best of their ability. We can’t ask for any more than that.

Into The Neighborhood started a Jobs for Life site in the Richmond City Justice Center (RCJC) in the fall of 2015.  We are grateful to the Jobs RVA team and their support in starting and maintaining Jobs for Life site in the RCJC. We share best practices and resources, learning from one another.  To God be the Glory! Great things He is doing!  Thanks, Jobs RVA!!
