For the last 6 years I've been a volunteer for WWEE in their Kent location. After being introduced to the clothing boutique, I was hooked because of how empowering every aspect of the program is for participants! I also volunteer in the classroom discussing first impressions and how to feel great and look professional for interviews and work and then let them shop the boutique. The best part about the program extends beyond what I do as a volunteer - there are so many volunteers and the amazing staff that make the program so great. WWEE keeps tabs on all participants to see how they achieve their goals and put to use the skills they've learned while in the program. The 2 years of follow up services provide a network for participants to call on as they need it while establishing their careers and earning a livable wage.
