Employment for Women
WomELLE’s employment program helps women build strong vocational skills and provides them with positive community and cultural support. We have positioned ourselves initially to serve on the average 25 young women a month. However, prior to the end of the year, we will be increasing that number. We offer our members classes on topics such as how to prepare a professional resume and cover letter, how to prepare for an interview and advanced vocational training that will equip them for employment. We are building our job placement program to serve those women who are ready to move into the workforce.
WomELLE understands attending school can be very expensive, so we created this program to help women prepare to go back to school. The program provides school application fees to financially disadvantaged women that have been through our employment preparation program. The program will also provide training and workshops, or one-on-one tutoring to help women learn new skills. Our goal for this project is to encourage women with the desire and motivation to return to school to increase their skills and provide more opportunities to succeed in their professional life with our support.
WomELLE truly believes in mentoring and how it can help change a woman's life. This program is our core program and will positively inspire women to fulfill their potential. Learning through others in innovative ways can help women create a plan to accomplish a range of strategic goals. This program offers up to 4 weeks of 1 on 1 and group mentoring that will encourage change in our members’ mindsets. Mentors will be matched with subjects based on a range of criteria, including goal-setting, time management, life balance, and giving them transitional skills awareness.
WomELLE for a Cause provides financial assistance in the form of bill payments for rent, electricity, water, gas and child care while undergoing our mentoring program. This program is only available to women with low incomes, have children, are denied welfare or are undergoing our mentoring program.
