Listen as Job Seekers and Other Participants Speak Their Truths

2023 Steps to Success: We Let Our Community Know Their Voices Count!

DW helps job seekers find and raise their voices. And as those we serve accomplish successes, so do we – our staff, volunteers, and interns learn, relate, and advocate. Abdulaleem, Ger, Marwa, Meghan, and Mohammed voice their stories in this 1-hour recording of the event. If you don't have that much time, skip around – we think you'll find something worthwhile!

Work: Foundation for Healthy Families

This touching video shares the stories of Ger, a Daily Work intern and her family, and Senait and Dereje, Daily Work job seekers. See how good work is providing the foundation for a healthy life for them and their families.  

Daily Work's Holistic Approach

After 17 years as a valued employee, Jaye was suddenly unemployed after the company was sold. Hear how her partnership with Daily Work connected her to resources that made the difference in her job search.

The Internship Experience at Daily Work

None of us knew what to expect when COVID struck and everything, including student internships, had to become a virtual experience. Our 2020-2021 interns rose to the challenge and wanted to share what it feels like to be a Daily Work intern.

Get to Know the Faces of Daily Work

Watch this video to meet five people as they tell their compelling stories about how their lives have changed because of our organization.

From Ethiopia to Minnesota

More than 70 percent of the people we serve are new immigrants. While there is no "one" story that epitomizes the unique challenges involved in moving across the world, learning a new language, and finding a way to support a family, Abera gives his perspective on what relocating from Ethiopia to the U.S. means to him.

Abera's grit and determination is inspiring. Now he gives back by serving on the Daily Work Board of Directors!

Daily Work values the trust of our clients, volunteers and donors. All videos are shown with their consent. These people give of themselves when they share personal information so we present their stories with admiration and respect. We hope that these narratives inspire you to learn more about our organization.
