Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our vision is to reach regions in the United States and developing countries that demonstrate a demand for women in the marketplace and fill that void with skilled, educated women who become accomplished business owners who make valuable contributions by creating jobs opportunities in their regions or home countries. Each Chapter created through this project will embrace the needs of the women by providing support and assistance in whatever capacity needed. Through donor support and Corporate Sponsoring and contributions, we are able to provide targeted technical assistance and advisory services to Women Entrepreneurs along with necessary housing, pay tuition for the vocational training component, offer specialized training and other tools the women will need for success. Each woman who completes our program represents hope, change and a better future for generations to come.
