Not all women are the same, but most of us have common needs and desires. We want to find a way to earn extra income. We’d like to spend more time with our family or just for ourselves. Maybe we have some “me time” and want to treat ourselves now and then. Inspiring women to get out of their comfort zone, Handy Women Project provides free short-term training as well as career support and job matching.
We teach sales, marketing, basic home improvement skills and more through a hands-on program leading up to an event where they can showcase that they’re talented enough and ready for full-time work with local GTR partners.
