The old proverb says:

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. 

Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Get in the Boat: Fishing Lessons

The old proverb says:

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. 

Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

At River City Hope Street we believe in “teaching to fish”. We equip people for better employment and for life. Our two-fold approach demonstrates the power of God’s love and teaches practical hands-on skills.

River City Hope Street, a 501c3 Christian charity, invites you to “get in our boat” with #GivingTuesday to help us supply more “fishing lessons.”

Life Bridge Job Corps, one arm of River City Hope Street offers adult education classes each spring and fall. Our Job Advancement program features computer classes, resume writing, job searching and more. We also offer English as Second Language, a GED Prep class and Citizenship- all to help men and women attain better employment- or how to fish for themselves.

The Career Life Ministry arm of River City Hope Street offers technical trade education- electrical and plumbing- that can lead to certification and apprenticeship.

The program cost for each trade student in $375. For those that need Citizenship or a GED Prep class, add $100 each. For those who would benefit from English as a Second Language, or Job Advancement, add $25. It all adds up! The “fishing lessons” can equate to $600 per person.

Your contribution can make a huge difference in educating men and women for greater employability. Please “get in our boat” to reach our goal of raising $9000. That will totally cover “fishing lessons” for 15 students, or partially cover many more.
