What We Do

Job Point is mid-Missouri’s premier employment center. Since 1965, we have been linking people and jobs through innovative training, education and business partnership, enriching the communities where we work and live. We specialize in preparing individuals to enter the workforce, serving high risk youth ages 16+ and adults and with disabilities, social, economic, legal or educational disadvantages.

Why We’re Great

Job Point offers a hand up, not a hand out. By “teaching to fish” we assist unemployed Mid-Missourians to achieve self-sufficiency. Rather than draining public resources, newly trained graduates enter the workforce and become productive, tax-paying citizens, fueling the local economy with increased disposable income. The return on investment is unquestionably powerful.

Why We Deserve Your Support

Assisting individuals to achieve economic independence builds bridges out of poverty. Through training and internships, Job Point fills a community need for competent, compassionate healthcare and skilled construction workers. An increase in safe, affordable housing and improved infrastructure on local roads and bridges is an added bonus.

What We Need

Job Point consistently seeks volunteer assistance for tutoring and general office work. In-kind needs include office equipment, ergonomic office chairs, economical vehicles, health/nursing and construction tools and equipment, printing, advertising and business related staff training.
