A Meaningful Life Begins with Meaningful Work

“A meaningful life begins with meaningful work. There’s something truly transformative about the dignity found in meaningful work. Having a job can give an individual the means and the motivation to overcome past adversities, provide for loved ones, and achieve their dreams.” —Cincinnati Works

Luke Meyer, a sophomore accounting major at Notre Dame, joins us to talk about his Summer Service Learning Program (SSLP) in his hometown of Cincinnati, OH, working for a non-profit called Cincinnati Works. Cincinnati Works assists with unemployment, but unlike a typical employment agency, they form lifelong partnerships to not only prepare people for the workforce but to help them succeed and advance in the workforce. Luke shares his experience working with them and how the SSLP prepared him to truly encounter others and get the most out of his experience.
