Many unemployed and underemployed women deal with life challenges that can get in the way of pursuing a good career. 


We will help women navigate these challenges by connecting them with resources they might need, from financial and family assistance to mental health counseling.


We also plan to set our trainees up for success by offering training that deals specifically with:

  • Personal Financial Management

  • Health & Wellness

In addition, our program will include a peer-support network that is a tried-and-true way to ensure success in women's pre-apprenticeship training programs like ours.
