Recent News From Hope Gospel Mission
Solomon Learning Center
In 2005, Hope Gospel Mission opened the doors on its new education center. Over the past 5 years, our education center has expanded and added new curriculum just about every year. It is our desire to provide the residents of Hope Gospel Mission with the best education we can so they will be more successful in their future careers.
What an amazing privilege to announce what God is doing at Hope Gospel Mission this spring and summer. We are in the process of expanding our Education Center! This expansion will allow us to double the educational content we offer to the residents within the Renewed Hope Program as well as offer our resources to people in the Chippewa Valley.
Solomon Learning Center is the name of the new school. We will be remodeling the leased space in downtown Eau Claire during the summer in preparation to start using the new location for its residents in September. By the spring of next year we anticipate offering open enrollment to the community to attend our work readiness classes and even get management and technology related certificates.
The learning center will operate on a quarterly calendar with both daytime and evening courses. A special emphasis will be to help those who are not adequately equipped for entry level employment or just need a class or two in specific areas of weakness.
Here are some of the ways you can help: donating remodeling materials or labor for remodeling the building we will be leasing, monetary donations for some of the new furniture and equipment that will be needed, and scholarships for students from the community that cannot afford the expense of getting this training.
If you are an employer who wants to partner with us, please let us know. We have special opportunities for student internships and job placements for our graduates. Providing work for people rebuilding their lives can be a very gratifying experience for both the employer and the new employee.
