Before joining the Board at TBICO, I attended a class graduation, giving me the opportunity to meet some of the students and their families and to learn what impact TBICO has had on their lives. To them, TBICO goes beyond the skills ... it is about preparing them and giving them the tools to be able to go on the interviews, land the jobs and be successful. Through this program, women strengthen their abilities and build self-confidence. One woman's son said to me "I finally have my mom back."
