JACKSONVILLE, TX - The Board of Directors for Christian Men's Job Corps, a nonprofit recently funded by A Circle of Ten's, Expanding Capacity Opportunities for Nonprofits, participated in strategic planning to begin preparing plans for the future. The group studied where they were currently and where they would like to be within five years. Topics covered included Mission & Services; Staff, Board, Volunteers; Marketing; Budget; and Facilities. The training took place on Feb. 24, 2011, and was led by Kathy Holdway and Pam Anderson, Facilitators for C10.
Charles Smith, Executive Director for CMJC stated "The training provided by C10 sparked several ideas from the board members. The time was well spent and C10 facilitated the material in a very innovative but pragmatic approach. I feel we now have the basics to form a strategic plan."
Christian Men's Job Corps was awarded a capacity building subgrant in July 2010. These funds were made possible through the US Dept of Health & Human Services "Expanding Capacity Opportunities for Nonprofits" (ECON) grant, which brought $230,000 in competitive subgrants in the North Tyler area. A myriad of training and technical assistance is also being provided to Community & Faith-based nonprofits geared towards increasing their capacity to provide improved and/or increased services.
ECON is an initiative of A Circle of Ten, Inc., based in Jacksonville, TX, who, along with several cooperating entities, is providing much of the training and technical assistance. Christian Men's Job Corps subgrant funds are being used to employ a Site Coordinator to assume full day and evening services.
In collaboration with C10,Christian Men's Job Corps is a program maintained by a Site Coordinator whose responsibilities are to lead in the ministry plan and coordinate each participant's journey toward meeting his goals and those of CMJC. The Site Coordinator recruits, trains, supervises, and evaluates volunteers and mentors.
Christian Men's Job Corps is a ministry of Women's Ministry Union of Texas. Each site is to encourage, mentor, and champion every man who comes through the door regardless of where he came from or how he got here and to show and share love through simple acts of kindness.
