Each participant is assigned a mentor — a fellow woman who is a leader in the community. This mentoring relationship increases community engagement and relationships beyond school.
Through both one-on-one and group sessions, our women are coached on topics such as time and stress management as well as performing a strengths assessment for continual growth.
Our participants are required to participate in at least four life-learning activities each year. These include computer training, self-defense classes, and community programs.
Growing up in poverty doesn’t set the best stage for future financial skills. We provide our women semi-annual financial counseling to teach them how to spend and save wisely.
WACS provides sessions on resume writing, proper dress, interview skills, networking skills, and other helpful tools to ensure the women are ready for the workplace.
The support our participants receive isn’t free. For every $100 in support our participants receive, they are required to perform one hour of community service.
