Seven Areas of Life Training® (SALT)
Tuesdays - 6:30pm to 8:00pm
SALT is a biblically-based training series designed to teach people, from a biblical perspective, in seven areas of life: spiritual, psychological, social, physical, financial, marital and parental. SALT uses simple diagrams to illustrate foundational biblical truths making them easy to remember and share with others. SALT teaches individuals how to honor God and live a more complete and peace-filled life, nothing missing … nothing broken.
Group and Individual Mentorship - Churches, community-based organizations and businesses are an extraordinary resource for providing mentors who help participants become connected to a community of support, which fosters success at work, but also in life.
Group mentoring sessions create opportunities for peer support, improved communication, problem resolution and coping skills and civic engagement. Participants may also be matched with a mentor for one-on-one support.
Our mentors are trained men and women who have demonstrated sound Christian character and a commitment to supporting other men and women during their re-integration process and beyond.

Referrals for Supplemental Resources - CCTP collaborates with more than two dozen agencies across Maricopa County.

Applicants are referred to CCTP-Arizona by various partners and affiliate agencies (i.e. Department of Corrections, Prison Fellowship, Church Prison Ministries, and Agency Partners). A written application, as well as an intake and assessment interview is required to determine an applicant’s readiness to complete all required aspects of the program.

Selection - the CCTP process is designed to support applicants who are committed to doing the hard work necessary to make the transition back into society after incarceration. We can provide many tools, but each ready applicant MUST make a commitment to change and persevere. Applicants must also commit to participating in the life skills training.
Biblically-based life skills classes and group mentoring is offered on a weekly basis to all participants. Additionally, workforce readiness training is provided. This includes resume writing, interview coaching and job searching.
CCTP Arizona hosts regular Employer Roundtables with business owners who spend time with our participants in an open forum for to discuss their business industry demands and employer expectations. Roundtables are the greatest opportunity for employers to dispel the myths about formerly incarcerated individuals.
Construction industry employment opportunities are CCTP’s primary focus. However, our employment partners come from various industries. Placement is made according to applicant readiness, skills, experience and availability of opportunities within the partnership.
