As a proud former board member and chair, I would like to share my admiration and respect for this organization. The staff at Vermont Works for Women is incredibly professional, caring, and smart. The programs they deliver for women and girls are outstanding and the outcomes are impressive. I remember attending a training program graduation at the Dale Correctional Facility for Women several years ago. The lump in my throat grew as I listened to a father pour out his gratitude to VWW for providing his daughter (an incarcerated woman at the end of her sentence) with real job skills, encouragement and support. He thanked VWW for giving her the chance after many years of failure, to be successful at something! He told the audience that he was confident that she would find a good job and be able to support herself. I will never forget that day!
Vermont Works for Women is a one-of-a-kind organization supporting women as they move into the workforce. Whether their journey is from youth to adulthood; from prison returning to the community; from poverty to financial stability; or from one career to another, VWW covers the bases to make sure that women have the support, skills, contacts, and confidence to make the transition as smoothly as possible. VWW is a bright star in the darkness for many women who don't know where to turn for workforce skills.
