The Hill Country Charity Ball Association is
pleased to announce that we have selected the Christian Women’s Job
Corps as the 2017 Hill Country Charity Ball Recipient.
The Christian Women’s Job Corps of Kerr County (CWJC) was organized as a
501c3 in October 1999 and graduated the first class of interns May 2000.
As of May 2016, we have graduated 370 women with an employment rate of
95%. Our mission is to provide a safe, Christ-centered environment to
encourage spiritual, professional, and personal growth that transforms
women, families, and our community. Our purpose is to assist women in
our community to achieve self-sufficiency. Often, our interns are single
parents, products of abusive situations, overcoming legal challenges and
life issues that prevent them from securing career employment. It is the
desire of CWJC to empower and educate.
The Christian Women’s Job Corps holds two 12-week semesters per year in
which the women study Microsoft Word, Excel, Quickbooks, and computer
graphics. Women @ Work classes teach career assessments, resume’
writing, interview skills, business ethics and etiquette. Interns also
study money management, parenting, healthy relationships, personal
discovery, and much more. Every day begins with Bible Study. Applicants
must be at least 18 years of age, hold a GED or High School Diploma, and
complete a written application and an interview.
Our active alumnae attend on-going meetings and focus on various service
projects in our community. With the majority of our alumnae employed,
one can encounter them in almost any type of Kerrville business.
