Our Men’s Workforce Development program is a voluntary, one-year residential program where men overcoming addictions can pursue revolutionary change through biblical-based discipleship, life skills and construction-related job training. Interns live and learn together through mentorship and daily Bible studies at Gideon’s House in downtown Greenville. Job training is provided through our training center and construction of our LoCAL homes, built specifically for households earning 30% or below the area median income. Interns are enrolled in the NCCER Core course at Greenville Technical College, and graduate with training in our Four Pillars of Success program, helping each man move towards economic mobility.


“I made the decision to come here not just to learn construction, not just to learn electrical work, but to be surrounded by these good men and to be in this discipleship program.”

—Scott Peters, Men’s Workforce Development intern
