Follow Us:After nearly 10 weeks of Job Readiness classes at Life Bridge, we asked ourselves “what’s next for our participants?” The answer came in two directions: further education or employment. So we devised two “What’s Next” panels. For some, what may come next is job training or career education that is industry specific. To that end, we hosted a panel of representatives from area schools such as Star of Texas Dental School, Austin Community College, Career Life Ministries Electrical program and Virginia College. Several short-term certification programs were highlighted during the discussion. A second panel focused on Employment as “What’s Next” for many LBJC graduates.Read More →
