The main object of NWLA JOBS Program is to assist students who are interested in attending the annual Symposium who may need assistance in raising money for their tuition. JOBS benefits both the student and the person, organization or business that is in need of a specific service. Examples of services offered can vary from sweeping out a storeroom, to stocking shelves, or designing flyers to computer programing. There are students with various skills that can be used to fill a market need. All students will be required to write a report on what they learned at NWLA.
Here’s how it works:
Scenario I — MARKET in need of LABOR
Mr. Smith owns a successful business where he spends much of his time. Lately he has had so much going on that he has fallen behind on simple but necessary projects like sweeping out and organizing boxes in the storeroom or taking some items that he wanted to donate down to the Youth Ranch. On top of everything he has purchased a new computer and is not proficient at working some of the programs.
Mrs. Brown has a very busy life with a husband, three active children and a small business that she is building. She wants to send out flyers to prospective customers, but does not have the time to design a flyer and some of her new customers haven’t been added to her database.
Both Mr. Smith and Mrs. Brown could use some help on small projects along with some computer training and or programming.
A friend told Mrs. Brown about the NWLA JOBS Program where she can hire a student who is working to earn tuition to the annual Symposium held in Boise.
Mr. Smith already knows about NWLA and also knows a young neighbor who he thinks would enjoy learning about NWLA and attending the annual symposium.
Each places a call to NWLA Special Events & JOBS Coordinator, Maureen Hatfield at (208) 315-2085 and explains their needs to Maureen who immediately goes to work to find an enterprising student for Mrs. Brown and a prospective job for Mr. Smith’s young neighbor.
Scenario II — LABOR in need of MARKET
Johnny is a student who wants to attend the NWLA annual Symposium but is not employed and needs to earn money for tuition. His skills include computer programming, small odd jobs and states that he has a truck and can haul or move items as needed.
He places a call to Maureen and registers his name as someone who is looking for a way to earn money for his tuition. Maureen posts an ad on nwlibertyacademy.org and contacts people in the area where Johnny lives to see if there are any projects in need of labor.
Upon completion of JOB, a tax deductible check is written to the White Pine Foundation, Inc. noting the student who will receive credit toward their tuition.
NWLA JOBS Program provides benefits to both those seeking to fill a need for LABOR (Individuals, Organizations or Businesses in need of skilled workers) and those seeking to fill a need for a MARKET (students looking for ways to earn funds for tuition)
Scenario III — BENEFACTOR wanting to support a charity, individual, etc.
Example 1: Alan knows about a non-profit organization that needs help with setting up a database or to do some computer work. Alan tells the President of the non-profit that he has a student who will intern for the organization.
Example 2: Jason knows a widow who is in need of help with yard work. He provides a young worker who trims bushes, weeds planter beds and mows the lawn.
Both men make it possible for others to receive needed help. Each man will write a tax deductible check to White Pine Foundation, Inc. for a Sponsorship to the NWLA Symposium.
LABOR – Student Application
Individual, group, business, etc.
All checks paid through the JOBS Program are tax deductible and should be made payable to White Pine Foundation.
