Local Business Owner Partners with BsideU for Life

BsideU for Life was grateful to welcome local business owner Molley Ricketts into our Life Skills department.

Over the past four weeks, Ricketts and her team at Incipio Workforce Solutions, have been working closely with our staff and students.  They have developed and facilitated a four week interactive course on personal branding as it relates to career planning.  During that time our students have benefited from their professional experience and expertise. Discussions about resume writing, building an appropriate social media presence, and preparing for an interview were just a few of the topics they covered. Their insights lead to robust conversations between our girls.

 

Incipio Workforce solutions has pledged to partner with BsideU for Life over the next two years as part of their own internal “community building” initiative. They have a strong commitment to local non-profit organizations who serve at risk women and children in the Louisville area.   According to Ricketts, choosing BsideU for Life was an easy decision made after her and her team visited our new location at 701 West Muhammad Ali Boulevard a few months ago.

It would be difficult not to be deeply moved and impressed by the great work being done in the lives of our students”, said Sandy Gross, Director of Life Skills Programming.  “Many people are more familiar with our crisis pregnancy center than they are the continuing care women receive through our life skills department.  With more than a dozen courses, a full cafeteria, and a beautiful child care facility we are able to offer our students a top notch Christ centered experience Monday through Friday all year long.”

 The team from Incipio plans to offer additional courses in the Fall of 2019 and again in 2020.  This kind of ongoing commitment from a local business is what helps keep our Life Skills Program not only relevant to our students, but helps to ease the already extensive workload on our small but effective team of instructors.

We are very grateful for Molley and her team and we look forward to working closely with them in the months and years to come.
