MEMPHIS, TENN. - The Crye-Leike Commercial Memphis Division has had the unique privilege of working alongside employees, volunteers and participants of the Work Life program facilitated by Advance Memphis.

According to Advance Memphis, The Work Life program is a soft skills job-training program to assist unemployed or underemployed people. The class focuses on finding dignity through work and overcoming personal roadblocks to attaining employment.

The Crye-Leike Commercial team, led by Managing Broker Eric Fuhrman, visited the Work Life program to share a meal and learn more about the job-readiness and job-assistance programs offered through Advance Memphis. Two Crye-Leike Commercial agents volunteered to participate in mock job interviews, the last step before students graduate from the Work Life program.

"Perspective is power," said Fuhrman. "We believe keeping our city strong requires learning from each other to build caring communities and opportunities for growth through work."

Established in 1977 in Memphis, TN, Crye-Leike has continued to uphold its Core Value of being a good corporate neighbor. Crye-Leike Commercial agents look forward to working with Advance Memphis in the future to help bring economic stability to neighborhoods throughout South Memphis.
