The mission of WHW is to provide comprehensive employment support services to empower disadvantaged men, women and teens to achieve economic self sufficiency through employment success.
Results:
WHW experienced some amazing growth during 2013-2014. With expanded educational workshops and advanced computer training, this was the very first year in WHW history where we served more clients in our Education Program than in our Apparel Program. Our Resume Development Workshop, where clients work with Resume Coaches to create an effective resume and our Mock Interview Workshop where clients have the opportunity to be video taped as they interview and see just how they present themselves to potential empowers are two of our most popular workshops. Advanced computer classes on Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint are at capacity every week and our LinkedIn Workshop which included professional photos was a favorite. One WHW clients sums it up this way, “You helped me create a resume, build my skills, prepare for interviewing and build my self-confidence. I wouldn’t have this great job today if it weren’t for all of you.”
