Workforce Development

The Community Strengthening Workforce Development Initiative is aimed at providing job readiness, employment and training services.  Low-income women and minorities in the Mahoning Valley will be the target of this project.  


Women who have been out of work, or are looking for a change in career, or are interested in returning to school can contact the YWCA for assistance in developing an education and career plan leading to employment and economic self-sufficiency.


The YWCA will collaborate with Hard Hatted Women of NEO and other local agencies to provide services that assist women in preparing for and obtaining employment through life-skills training, job readiness, and job search as well as linkages into training and employment into non traditional jobs for women.

For more information call 330-746-6361.
