Once a participant demonstrates mastery of the skills taught in the academy and completes all required tasks, he begins the job search where he puts his new skills to practical use. During the job search portion of the program, the men continue to attend classes and perform community service as determined by the retention counselors. Christopher Place men are introduced to various employers through job fairs, internet programs and other employment services. In many instances, the academy is able to identify specific potential employers for successful placement for participants in full-time jobs with full benefits.
