Investing in women and girls is good
for our communities & the economy
We work toward the day when women and girls make confident, deliberate choices about life and work that reflect an expansive grasp of the world’s possibilities, a fearless commitment to pursuing their dreams, and that contribute to the vitality of our communities.
Research proves the link between job training and lower poverty rates. Investments in training can put Vermont women to work — reducing dependency on government services and raising tax revenue. Clearly, investing in women and girls is good for our communities and the economy.
We work to address the needs of women in Vermont to earn a livable wage and to succeed despite numerous personal, educational and economic barriers to employment.
We also help educate women and girls about the wide array of non-traditional career opportunities available to them, many of which may have never occurred to them to pursue. Our programs offer opportunities to explore different interests, to build confidence through mentoring, coaching and career exposure, and to perfect skills through hands-on training.
We serve women and girls throughout the state of Vermont, from a wide variety of racial and economic backgrounds, physical abilities, sexual orientations, and gender expressions and identities.
