Pointers Community Initiatives in partnership with Goodwill held a Workforce & Entrepreneurship Workshop a few weeks ago at the Menasha campus, with an emphasis on gaining and maintaining employment in the community. We provided skills training to 58 Appleton Area School District high school girls and boys s at the five-hour event and discussed interviewing, resume building, and entrepreneurship.
What an amazing opportunity of impact PCI had to empower the next generation! Students from Appleton North, West & East High Schools learned about how to prepare for, recognize & take advantage of opportunities either as an employee or an entrepreneur. They heard from people like them who have done it before that IT IS POSSIBLE for them to do it too! So awesome

 This wouldn’t have been possible without our wonderful community partners like Goodwill NCW Partnership Community Health Center U.S. Venture, Inc, The Cozzy Corner Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region United Way AASD - Diversity People of Progression Red Shoes Inc.. Thank you so much for rallying around PCI to make this vision a reality! Let’s do it again soon!

Please don't forget to continue to support this vision to empower our women and girls, especially from a minority backgrounds.

 

Thank you for all you do 

Regards,
