Jobseekers Network Mission is to strengthen communities by equipping youth and families with tools and resources through direct services that will reduce, eliminate, or prevent at risk behaviors that lead to mental health issues, generational cycles of poverty, and incarceration
Jobseekers Network was formed as a 501c3 nonprofit organization in 2017 to help people that are underemployed, unemployed, veterans, and individuals with disabilities find long term career opportunities. In 2020, at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jobseekers Network restructured and began focusing on youth and families living in poverty that resulted in youth being involved in at-risk behaviors that led to truancy, teen pregnancy, suicide, substance and sexual abuse, gun violence, and incarceration.
The restructure of Jobseekers Network formed with a new Mission and Vision that is backed by caring adults with backgrounds in youth camps, in school and after school programs, youth sports, youth career development, and social emotional mentoring of youth involved in the juvenile court system, migrant youth and schools that face at-risk behaviors. Bryan Moore the original founder of Jobseekers Network teamed up with Julie Driskill and restructured to bring more than twenty five years’ experience in educating youth and families on social emotional learning and career development.
Julie is a graduate of Atlanta Bible College with a Degree in Education. She spent 25 years as an educator and simultaneously owned a camp. Julie created a youth mentoring program in 2015 for at-risk youth and youth identified as lacking social emotional skills. Bryan spent 20 years in executive recruitment providing career readiness programs and workforce development. In 2017 Bryan created Jobseekers Network and has helped hundreds of low income youth and families find long term careers that reduced poverty and strengthened community leaders.
In 2019, Julie and Bryan began working together combining their skills and experiences and began mentoring at-risk youth in schools and in after school programs, youth involved in the Juvenile Court Systems, migrant youth and families and youth involved in recreation and travel sports. Jobseekers Network will combine their skills and experiences into a three tier program and will continue the efforts of working with youth.
