Attending DCWJC was a phenomenal experience. I woke up looking forward to the clean, positive Christian fun-loving environment where I came to learn to be productive in life. I also appreciate the caring team of instructors who equipped us with positive life skills. DCWJC was a life-changing experience. Now I can honestly say I am an overcomer!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”—Jeremiah 29:11

Don’t Let Circumstances Overshadow Your Hope!

Change and crisis can occur without warning—job loss, addictions, broken relationships, disability or illness. For others, it’s not a change, but a way of life that has been handed down through generations. Dallas Christian Women’s Job Corps exists to empower women to experience spiritual, personal, and professional success. We give you an place—free of charge—to experience long lasting relationships while developing your job skills and life skills. We do this within a Christian context, although we accept women of all beliefs.

The primary objectives of the Job Readiness and Life Skills Program are to assist women to become self-sufficient and independent through teaching “hard” skills” (computer training, resume preparation, money management/budgeting, interview skills, etc.), and “soft” skills ( Bible study, healthy relationships/boundaries, character development, health and nutrition, personal safety/family violence, parenting skills, time management, etc.), in conjunction with the help and support of a mentor, to holistically move the woman forward toward self-sufficiency.

This Program is offered three times a year—Fall, Winter and Spring—and serves approximately 15 women per class. The class is taught 100-percent by volunteers, with support from two paid staff.

  • All participants must first complete an application and be interviewed.
  • At that time they may be asked to register with Texas Workforce Commision and/or participate in vocational testing.
  • After both the applicant and the DCWJC representatives feel that Christian Women’s Job Corps is right for them, a covenant will be discussed.
  • The covenant is a commitment on the part of Dallas Christian Women’s Job Corps and the applicant assuring that each party involved understands her responsibilities and what she can expect from the other.
