LMM’s Workforce Development program prepares participants for meaningful careers that will enable them to achieve financial stability, self-sufficiency, and even wealth-building. It equips them to support themselves and their families, and to avoid recidivism.

The program is available to individuals facing adverse life experiences with no out-of-pocket expenses thanks to our generous donors and community partners.

A second chance for employment and career advancement can be made possible with an investment from you. 

Please consider sponsoring a student this holiday season. Gifts of all sizes are needed to provide support such as:

  • Once semester of vocational training ($2,000) 
  • Behavioral Health Therapy & Group Counseling ($1,200)
  • Career counseling, mock interviews, resume workshops, and connecting students to living wage jobs ($500)
  • Transportation costs for one semester ($300)
  • Course materials ($250)
  • Training equipment and work uniforms for one year ($150)

With over a 90% job placement rate and 86% of students being placed in living wage jobs ($15/hr. or more), this program is a sound investment of your contribution.
