The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
York County Christian Women's Job Corps is a mentor based ministry that equips women trapped in poverty, or other dependant situations, for life and employment.
We use volunteers as mentors, as teachers (resume writing, job interview practice, budgeting, time management, organization, parenting and miuch more), in other words all of the soft skills needed to deal with life. Volunteers plan Family Day Activities for the women in our program and conduct a weeknight camp twice a year for Families.
Our Women in the Church ministry at Scherer PCA Church in Lake Wylie have supported this ministry for many years. Some of us have attended fund raisers and have heard testimonies from women who have been helped by YCCWJC. I agree with their mission statement and feel that they accomplish the goals listed in their description statement.
