From Start To Finish

We connect you and your odd job with teens in training who are also your neighbors! You can feel great about helping them practice skills and earn a paycheck.

A mentor will receive your request, set up the job, ensure good work, and follow up with you. 


OUR STORY

Neighborhood Jobs is an initiative of Neighborhood Church in the Jackson Neighborhood of Fresno, CA. We believe God cares about every aspect of our neighbors and neighborhood. Neighborhood Jobs started to provide economic opportunities in a place where people struggle with poverty and barriers to employment. It matters to Jesus that our neighborhood and neighbors would flourish.


How We Work

Equipping

We believe the worker matters as much as the work. Once a month we gather together to learn a new skill. From basic plumbing and electrical to fixing those old double hung windows. Our team is adding capacity. We also train on money management, educational success and character development.  

The Workers & Mentors

The workers are teenagers from the neighborhood and local schools. They are mentored by neighbors in the Jackson Neighborhood of Fresno, CA. We coach and equip them to work hard and learn skills. We oversee them, their grades and job performance, and connect them with opportunities to learn the value of an honest job and honest pay.


Meet the workers

Hi I'm Danny. My favorite jobs are when something gets fixed. I love to play basketball at Jackson on the weekends. I am in High School. My family has lived in this neighborhood for 16 years and I love it because it is quiet.

Hi I'm Cesar. I am a student in High School and have been living in the Jackson Neighborhood for 6 years. What I like best about this place are the people. I'm the tallest in my family and my favorite food are the biscuits from the local gas station. You gotta try them!

Hi I'm Seth! Yard work is my hobby but I want to be an investigative journalist someday. I love my neighborhood because it is full of nice people and has stores near by. I also play football at school. I work at Neighborhood Jobs because I want to support myself and get work experience.

We're Ready For You

These teens can fix sprinklers, prune bushes, plant flowers, walk dogs, wash your car, rake leaves, organize photo albums, assemble furniture, put holiday lights up, water trees, dig holes, move stuff, go on ladders, scrub and scour - we could go on! 

What job do you wish a teenager would jump to do? 

We're excited to work - we're ready for you.
