Education & Career Training

When a girl first comes to Lifeline Family Center we ask her to share her dreams of the future with us … then we try to guide her in the direction to make some of those dreams come home 003true.  If she has not graduated from high school our first step is to help her get her GED.  We then help her set realistic goals for career training that may be another step toward her  dream while preparing her to be employable by her child’s second birthday.  Our girls must choose a career that pays a minimum of $10.75 per hour.  They may choose an Associate of Science Degree at the local college, or vocational school training.  As long as they work toward their career goal, volunteers provide free babysitting for them at the home.
