Christian Job Corps to livestream Circles event

MADISON COUNTY – Christian Job Corps (note the name) has changed two points inherent to the organization.

“Because of the increased need for serving both men and women, we are proud to announce our new name: Christian Job Corps of Madison County, Alabama Inc.,” Executive Director Elaine Dickson said.

“Under this new name (removing the word ‘women’s’), we will provide the same quality of education and mentoring but to more people. This change allows us to drastically increase our reach,” Dickson said.

Christian Job Corps helps individuals by offering internship opportunities with local businesses. Students can learn new skills, the benefits of networking and have a professional reference to include on their updated resumes.

In addition, Christian Job Corps is revamping the annual Circles event, which will be online this year. Circles on Nov. 2 at noon will be free. This event funds an entire year of Christian Job Corps programs that benefit men and women.

“Don’t worry. We’re committed to bringing you the same amazing Circles event you have experienced in the past. This year we’re just livestreaming it into your home,” Dickson said.

Circles assembles like-minded donors that care about helping others turn their lives around. “This year, more now than ever, we need your help,” Dickson said. “Because of job layoffs and disruptions from COVID-19, more people need our program.”

“By becoming a sponsor, you’re helping both women and men, who have no other place to turn, get back on their feet, gain back their confidence and help support their families,” Dickson said.

This year’s featured speaker, Becca Stevens, works as a leader, priest and entrepreneur. She is president of Thistle Farms, an international nonprofit that gives sanctuary for female survivors of prostitution, trafficking and addiction.

A Circles reservation will include a link to the event and an entry to win a Thistle Farms gift basket, valued at $150. “Make sure you and your friends register today for a chance to win these phenomenal products,” Dickson said. “Local vendors will attend with a virtual marketplace unlike any shopping experience you’ve had.”

“Going virtual has presented both new challenges and new opportunities, but we know it will be the best event yet,” Dickson said.
