These volunteers commit about 2 hours a week to help students reach their goal of passing the GED exam. The students work at their own pace using established curriculum.
Classes include Microsoft Word, Excel and basic keyboarding skills and help students prepare their professional resumés. Computer teacher assistants are vitally necessary for assisting the students one–on–one during computer classes.
Sponsors provide lunch or dinner for students on class days or on special events. We have 10 different class meetings (and meals) across our four locations each week.
Volunteers process donations and help women find the perfect employment appropriate attire and accessories.
Special events throughout the year include orientation, mentor socials, graduation celebrations, and our annual Circles Luncheon.
Help us record and communicate the important events of our ministry and achievements of our students.
Companies provide volunteer, entry-level internship opportunities for our students and a supervisor to help oversee the process. This valuable hands-on experience makes all the difference in preparing women for future employment.
