The Womens Resource Center of Manatee recently
received a donation from The Rotary Club of Anna Maria Island.
The check for $625 has been designated to cover the cost
of two participants in the Centers Life Launch Program,
which is a comprehensive curriculum for women to enhance
employability. The purpose of the program is to provide
a safe setting for women to explore their values, strengths
and challenges, learn employment strategies, set goals,
and create an action plan to move forward. The first component
of Life Launch is an interactive five-day workshop followed
by one-on-one sessions with an employment strategy coach
to fine tune job search skills and plans and to provide
encouragement in achieving employment goals. The last component
is access to other services provided at the Womens
Resource Center such as a career closet for interview clothes
and computer classes. Women wishing to register for Life
Launch should call 747-6797.
