  • "I realized I can do a lot more than I thought I am able and capable of. I just needed the proper education and support system with female mentors. I now feel my future will be different and I am able to build on my skills from NWEC. I feel more in control of my life now. Previous to starting I felt out of control with a bleak future."
    Lisa (Computer Technology Launch Program)
  • "I don’t believe I would be working if not for the tremendous support I received from NWEC. Within 6 weeks of the program ending, I was employed. The skills gained from NWEC will be critical in my success in my new role."

  • "A big weight was lifted from my shoulders, knowing that after all the knowledge I learned during the 3 weeks, I can finally get back on my feet and be more confident in starting a new route in my life."
    Suzanne M (Dietary Server Program)
  • "I would recommend this program to anyone. It really was life changing for me and, I know, for the other women in the group. It far exceeded my expectations. The support from Brenda, Carrie and Debbie is commendable. The variety of facilitators, quality of material and skills gained are all important tools I can take with me moving forward."

  • When I took the Code Pink program, I felt a little overwhelmed at the idea of learning coding. Once I was in the class, the instructor was knowledgeable, and went at a pace that allowed us to ask questions and provided help when needed. The class had a great pace for beginners, and I found it fun to create my webpage and edit it and make updates in real time.
