Mission Statement

Busy Empowering Employing Students (BEES) Moving women from dependency to self-sufficiency.

Description

At Every Woman Works:
"We help women write résumés, learn to interview and gain transferable job skills, but also provide classes on parenting, leadership, personal presentation, fitness and healthy eating," she says. "It’s a holistic, mind-body approach."

Each woman is assigned a coach who helps her get a job and stay employed. The coaches check in with graduates for years, helping them with challenges that arise at home and in the workplace.

"Providing ongoing social-emotional support is critical, because many women have been told all their life they wouldn’t amount to anything, so they don’t believe in themselves," . "It’s rewarding to see the women pass their newfound confidence and values onto their children, because that breaks the chain of poverty."
