Story Of Impact

Jennifer took our Elevate Work class while enrolled in the Standing by The Door program. Here is what she had to say about her experience:

“The Elevate Work program has been an absolute game-changer for me, and I can confidently say that it played a pivotal role in clarifying the career I wanted, but also in boosting my self-confidence beyond measure. The program’s unwavering support and encouragement transformed how I perceived myself, empowering me to see a potential in me that I hadn’t realized before. One of the most valuable aspects of the program was the opportunity to acquire new skills. 

Through their classes on Word and Excel, I gained practical computer skills that I now use daily in my current role as an intake supervisor for a sober living program, Standing by The Door. These skills have not only enhanced my job performance but have also allowed me to assist and inspire others to take these classes themselves. I share with them the wealth of knowledge I gained firsthand, emphasizing that it’s not just about acquiring technical skills; it’s about the people, the support, the guidance, and the chance to apply what you learn and receive constructive feedback.

Moreover, the program introduced me to the concept of building and continuously revising an action plan. This tool has proven invaluable in my daily work. It enables me to set clear goals, track my progress, and adapt to changing circumstances, ensuring that I remain effective in all my long and short-term goals. What truly sets the Elevate Work program apart is its foundation in faith. Placing God at the core of everything touched my heart profoundly. It provided me with a solid spiritual foundation that allowed me to see myself the way God does, which, in turn, bolstered my self-esteem. Believing in myself as a reflection of God’s love has given me the confidence to continue striving for a better future for myself, my family, and my community.

In conclusion, the Elevate Work program has not only equipped me with practical skills but has also instilled in me the self-confidence and faith-based foundation I needed to realize my full potential. Elevate Work program emphasizes the importance of a strong work ethic, drawing from God’s perspective, which highlights the value of dedication, diligence, and a commitment to excellence in all endeavors. This reinforces the idea that our work is not just for our own benefit but is also a way to honor God and contribute positively to the world around us.

I am forever grateful for the support, guidance, and opportunities it provided, and I look forward to paying it forward by helping others discover their own potential and achieve their goals.” – Jennifer
