This was the most rewarding volunteer experience, watching women grow in confidence as much as they did in their computer skills. The students and staff were such a pleasure!

Everyone is very friendly and encouraging there not only to the students but to the volunteers also. It's a great place for women to be empowered to succeed. The center is very easy to get to and is on the bus route.
