Women's empowerment is awesome. The Charles A. Jones Skills and Business Education Center has partnered with them for over ten years to assist their clients in becoming self sufficient and productive members of their families and communities. It is always a joy to see the women walk across the stage at graduation knowing that it is because of such a great organization and partnership with Women's Empowerment.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have personally seen dozens of women graduate form the Women's Empowerment Program and then come to our Vocational school and graduate and then find jobs and be successful.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes, great program...wish they could serve more women.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The friendly staff and the enthusiasm of the clients

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

encouraging, intelligent, warm, and kind

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

serve so many deserving women to become successful and confident members of their families and communities.

Ways to make it better...

nothing.. great work done here

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

they could use more money to help more women

One thing I'd also say is that...

Women's Empowerment has not only been a success for the women that are in the program but has allowed indivduals like myself, partners in the community, to gain knowledge and expertise in working with women to better assist them in their endeavors.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
