Work for Life partners with churches, vocational/training schools, community and international organizations, and others in impoverished regions. We work with organizations with integrity, a long term vision, and a sustainable approach to community development. These partners host Work for Life Entrepreneurship Academies at their facilities.
This collaborative approach enables us to take entrepreneurship to the people where they already congregate and eliminates the need for spending funds on buildings and infrastructure. Location partners agree to promote and register students for Work for Life programs.
Work for Life also partners with U.S. churches and other faith based organizations to launch Work for Life Entrepreneurship Academies alongside existing mission programs they currently support around the world. Work for Life programs provide a meaningful way to engage and involve business people within your congregation. They are able to use their business skills to make a positive impact in the world.
Work for Life is a non-profit organization founded by a group of business leaders in Austin, Texas with an interest in using business to help improve the lives of people living in poverty. Our entrepreneurship programs have been operating in East Africa since 2009. As we continue to see lives impacted, we are constantly on the look out for new opportunities. We are currently looking to expand into South America and South East Asia.
We have a unique opportunity to get behind our friends living in poverty and help them take action and become the solution to the problems that exist in their communities. We celebrate THEM as the change-makers. The entrepreneurs that step up and start businesses are the real heroes. Work for Life is merely a catalyst.
