Shine Career School - A Dream Realized

At Transitions we believe every girl in our program deserves the highest level of dignity and opportunity we can provide. We also believe every girl is capable of achieving her dreams with the right support and encouragement.  We don’t allow girls to settle for what society has told them they are capable of, like sewing and handy-crafts; we know they can do so much more. While every girl in our program studies English and computer technology, sometimes the advanced training she needs to begin the career of her dreams doesn’t exist in Cambodia.


Shine Career School is the realization of six years of dreaming on our part! Shine provides a firsthand opportunity to train girls in any career field they choose, and will serve to overcome the gap in training choices, by providing a high quality learning environment.  Shine will facilitate teaching opportunities for professionals around the world, in a variety of fields, to come to Cambodia and teach, while empowering survivors with the skills and knowledge they need to take control of their lives.


Shine will mirror our current program model and be fully social work focused and trauma-informed, toward healthy reintegration into Cambodian society. Our goal is to give girls the best opportunity to achieve their dreams and  have a successful future, while assisting graduates in job placement or business start-up, ensuring the highest chance of success.  We hope you will join us in supporting this vital new project and maybe even consider coming to Cambodia to teach some day!
