Life Skills

  • Mentoring

    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.

  • Life Coaching

    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.

  • Outside Training

    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.

  • Financial Counseling

    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.

  • Job Readiness

    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.

  • Volunteerism

    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.
