    • life skills
    • job skills
    • Bible study
  • one-on-one Christian mentors
  • an asset-based development approach
    • building upon participants’ strengths, not needs
    • committing to long-term change and progress
    • creating a trusted small-group community for participants
  • community collaboration
    • linking to – not duplicating – existing programs, training, resources
    • connecting with grass-roots leaders to identify participants and build trusting relationships

Pivot empowers participants to deal with life challenges that are deeper than the most recent crisis and partners with them providing a hand up, not a hand out.
