At More Than Words you will have two jobs: a Business Job and a YOU Job. In the Business Job you will receive training to process and ship online book and clothing orders all over the world, manage a cash register and provide excellent customer service, plan and run events, and go with our staff to pick-up book and clothing donations in our trucks. As you gain more experience, you’ll learn to facilitate meetings, run shifts, lead your peers, and train new co-workers.
In your YOU Job, you will be paid to work on yourself. You will be supported in your education plan or to create an education plan, learn about life essentials like finding housing, keeping a budget, and opening a bank account. You will participate in community building activities and workshops about employment, education and self-efficacy.
