Jail to Jobs Academy Helping Youth Offenders in Travis County

The last two weeks, Nineveh has been running our Jail->Jobs Academy training, which pays youthful offenders to come in for those two weeks, learn new job skills, be mentored and fed, as well as hearing different speakers teach life skills like how to get and keep a job, interviewing, how to deal with anger and unforgiveness, how to treat everyone with respect, and much, much more.

On Tuesday, Fox 7 Austin shot footage and interviewed our staff and a couple of our kids. See the full story here: http://www.fox7austin.com/news/local-news/jail-to-jobs-academy-helping-youth-offenders-in-travis-county

Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers that spoke at the academy as well as providing lunches!
