Mentoring Minds and Wood Networks donated 15 computers to Christian Women’s Job Corps on Thursday, September 5. Christian Women’s Job Corps is a community program that offers job and life skills to women in the East Texas area who have a financial need to work and who lack the necessary resources for education and training, specifically in the area of job skills.

This significant donation arrives at Christian Women’s Job Corps (CWJC) just three days before fall training is scheduled to begin. The computers will be utilized by the women to assist in computer training, business communication, applying for employment, career assessment, and learning life skills that will allow the women to transition from a life of dependency to one of self-sufficiency.

“We are excited to partner with Wood Networks as part of our ongoing commitment of giving back to the community,” said Robert Bush, CEO of Mentoring Minds. This is the second donation by Mentoring Minds to Christian Women’s Job Corps in the last 12 months. Mentoring Minds’ employee-based profit-sharing program, MindSHARE, donated $3,000 to CWJC in December 2012.
