MADISON – After graduation of several students for fall semester, Christian Women’s Job Corps of Madison County Inc. now is taking applications for the spring 2017 semester.
“Our job at Christian Women’s Job Corps is to assist area women to become self-sufficient by equipping them with essential educational, employment and life skills so that they can become viable contributors to the community, but we can’t do it alone,” Madison site coordinator Susan Elder said.
For classes in spring 2017 in Madison, application deadline is Jan. 20, 2017. Classes will meet at Heritage United Methodist Church at 29768 Huntsville Brownsferry Road for 10 weeks on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Orientation in Madison will be held Feb. 14. Madison classes will start Feb. 21.
Three sites are open in Huntsville. At Union Hill Primitive Baptist Church, 2115 Winchester Rd NW, computer classes are available in advanced Microsoft Excel. Classes will meet for 12 weeks on Monday and Thursday from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
At Union Hill, applications are due by Jan. 5. Orientation and first day of class will be Jan. 19, 2017.
The Pulaski Pike campus of Whitesburg Baptist Church at 3911 Pulaski Pike will have 10 weeks of classes on Monday and Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The preliminary GED test will be given Jan. 31.
At Pulaski Pike, applications are due Jan. 25. After orientation on Feb. 15, classes will start Feb. 20.
At First Baptist Church in Huntsville, 600 Governors Drive, 10 weeks of classes will start on Feb. 27 on Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Applications are due Feb. 8. Orientation will be Feb. 23.
For eligibility, women from 18 to 60 years old must show financial, spiritual or emotional need. Students want to enter the job market after a lengthy absence or advance to a better job.
On a continual basis, the job corps needs donations of flash drives, gift cards for supplies from Staples, business clothing, meals, intern sites, computers, cash and professional services from doctors, dentists, attorneys and mechanics.
Office hours are Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Heritage UMC. For more information, call 256-886-2280 or visit cwjc.net or Facebook/Christian Women’s Job Corps Madison.
