Empowering Women Who Are Rebuilding Their Lives
The results are in and they are impressive. In a recent Leap to Confidence class followup, the women reported that 75 percent had scheduled at least one interview, 94 percent had updated their resume, and 56 percent had gotten a job!
With a generous grant from Walmart Foundation, this program was expanded to include an employer panel discussion with human resource managers from local organizations, including Qualcomm, Sound, and City of San Marcos, who came and spoke about hiring practices and how to be more confident in an interview.
One participant said, “What I believe helped me most from Leap to Confidence was my ability to say positive qualities about myself out loud and know that I believe in myself. When I said I am hard working, I meant it AND it is true.” She also said the employer discussion panel made a big impact during the interview: “When my nerves got in the way, I was able to breathe and ask her,” could you please repeat that?” which was a suggestion of one of the HR managers.”
Thanks to the generous support of the Walmart Foundation and private donors like you, we are able to make a difference for women recovering from domestic violence, homelessness and other challenges.
We serve women who have moved beyond crisis; they have taken initiative and sought help, found safety, shelter, and counseling.
Now, they are stepping up, speaking out,
& changing the world.
Our grads are inspiring thousands of women around the region through our outreach programs.
