Connie Is Feeling Confident, Polished, and Ready for Employment Success

We are celebrating Connie today, YWCA’s Women to Work program participant! Through a resource partnership with Super Cuts, Connie was able to receive a professional hair cut that has boosted her confidence and helped her feel prepared for the job search.
2016-WomenToWorkParticipant_FreeHairCut“I just wanted to express my gratitude and thank you for your kindness into checking on a hair cutting program that can help put “Women to Work.”  I really needed a professional hair cut to make me feel more confident, polished and ready for the employment process.   When Super Cuts finished with my hair I was so excited with my look.  I am very gratefully for everyone’s kindness and generosity as it has given me a new positive outlook on life. Thanks so much again!”

WOMEN TO WORK PROGRAM

At the YWCA Spokane we offer a job readiness and employment support program called Women to Work. Women who are actively looking for work are met in a friendly, safe environment that offers small group and individual learning opportunities.
Each participant has access to a computer lab, will network with professionals from the community, engage in practice interviews, build a job portfolio, and receive one-on-one assistance while searching for employment.
Additional resources are provided to help participants address possible barriers to employment. Some barriers may include a lack of transportation, childcare, appropriate interview clothing, and a lack of hygiene and personal necessities items due to financial stress.
To enroll or learn more about the Women to Work program call 509-789-9299 or email Chris at chrisc@ywcaspokane.org.
