This week CACLV Work Ready presents the next chapter in the Self Empowerment Lecture Series.
Ways to Work Family Loan Program, will be our featured speaker on Thursday, May 19, 2011.
The Ways to Work Family Loan Program helps working parents to get a low-interest loan to purchase a used car or repair an existing vehicle. We are a non-profit program through Family Answers, Inc. that provides affordable loans to low-income families who lack access to fairly priced loans from traditional lenders because they have poor credit or no credit history.
Vanessa Chambers of Chamberlite Entertainment Inc. (based in Philladelphia,) visited the program on April 28, 2011, the first in a long line of lecturers, discussing with the participants how she was able to survive deplorable conditions to survive against all odds so that she might save herself and her family. She showed the group that if you stay with your convictions and decide when enough is enough, you can well be on your way to success.
With all the great events happening in North andSouth Bethlehem, Work Ready is reaching out to its participants and the community in which it serves. In the case of Ms. chambers Work Ready went even further past the ABE area and extended its arms to Philladephia. The goal at Work Ready is Income Improvement. Through the lecture series participants will learn all the necessary skills to get further along the road to success with “self-empowerment” being paramount to hitting the goal.
Alfonso spoke of thinking outside the box. He encouraged all participants to take thier power back by standing up for what you belive in and creating your own opportunities for success.
Mr. Todd made a profound impact on the classroom and opened everyone’s eyes to possibilities. Income Improvement is propelled by Self-empowerment yes, but Todd made sure to convey the message that we are our own motivation to get there. He invited the entire program to visit the event the city of Bethlehem asked him to promote for the Artswalk downtown on Broad Street. The Prolifick Place at the Downtown ArtsWalk will allow artists to express themselves through music, art, and fashion.
