Following the success of our 2017 and 2018 Job Clubs, we are excited to be offering this new Life Connections program for 15-19yr olds in 2019 - at no cost to participants - and continuing to support young people in our community.

Now I have started a Traineeship in Childcare and, thanks to Job Club and the staff at Life Church, I am confident about my future.
