My daughter was in a long term relationship, became pregnant at 17, gave birth at 18. The father cheated on her. =[ The "other girl" harassed my daughter at their high school while she was pregnant, so she dropped out to get away from her (they had 2 classes together) and persued her GED. Times have been tough but I am SO PROUD at how she is so mature and handles everything.
She has not yet had a job, but has volunteered at the library and at Habitat for Humanity. She is desperately searching for work, part time. In the morning so that I will watch my grandson a few hours. ( I work a graveyard shift)
Now her car is broken down after we purchased it and had it for 1 day. It costs roughly 600 to fix.
Her ex only gives her 50 dollars a month to take care of their child and she does need more.
Does anyone know where she can get work?
I have seen her come home from dozens of interfiews almost in tears saying that they told her, "We prefer someone with more...expierience." Does volunteer work not count?
Please help. We are two single moms!

I put all of my volunteer work down as previous experience - I dedicate 30+ hours each week to volunteering with girl scouts alone (and it's more like 50+ hours a week during cookie and recruitment seasons) and I also volunteer with other organizations. Just because I don't draw a salary does not mean I'm not working and using a skill set that I could easily use for earning a salary. I think your daughter is doing amazing things with volunteering and working to better herself. Good luck to both of you (c:
