A Global Generosity Movement
December 1, 2020
Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to stand together – to use the collective power of our individual generosity for good.
In keeping with our mission to serve the unemployed and underemployed in Greater Austin, we recognize Giving Tuesday as a critical opportunity to support job seekers in a tangible way. 2020 has been a year of challenges, and the unemployed are feeling it deeply. The average job search is taking much longer, and there is significant uncertainty in the job market.
On December 1st, JSN’s goal is to raise $2,000 in donations to provide for 10 Design & Focus scholarships that will equip job seekers with the focus, clarity, and confidence that they are desperately searching for during their unemployment.
One job seeker recently shared the impact the Design & Focus workshop had on her job search:
“The Design & Focus workshop was the turning point for my job search. Without the class, I felt lost and hopeless. It gave me direction and hope! The workshop helped me to understand myself better. I learned what was a true fit in my life and career. It has also helped to restore confidence in myself by teaching me that I have strong skills that have been underutilized. I look forward to my future now, knowing which direction I’m headed.”
