Queens College Foundation - CUNY - Women and Work

about

Women and Work is an economic empowerment and life-management training program offered FREE to low-income women in New York City. Reaching across all races, ethnicities, ages, religions, and sexualities, the program accepts women with modest educational attainment and little or erratic work experience through community outreach and institutional referrals. The underserved population is comprised of victims of domestic/family violence, single mothers, immigrants, displaced homemakers and downsized workers. The program’s partnership approach and supportive environment enhances self-esteem by giving participants a voice in shaping their learning experience, investing them with social capital, and establishing a social network. The areas of focus are: personal and professional development; literacy and humanities; computer and technology; job-readiness, retention, and mobility. The dynamic curriculum is delivered via a highly structured, multi-tiered program that stresses critical thinking and conceptual learning. Women and Work provides the tools for women to rebuild their lives, creating an infrastructure capable of generating economic stability and supporting long-term change.
