June 2010 — EWI releases a new entrepreneurship training curriculum in jewelry and felting with both basic and advanced levels. These five-week courses, led by experienced instructors, teach design, production, and basic market readiness and entrepreneurship skills, such as pricing, packaging, communication and marketing. The courses are specifically designed to teach immigrant and refugee women marketable skills in a short period of time.
They have been added in the past year in response to the increasing number of EWI beneficiaries who speak limited English, are at-risk populations (the homeless and survivors of domestic violence), and/or do not have an arts background. These women struggle to fulfill their basic needs, and EWI helps them by providing critical market readiness skills and empowering them to become self-sufficient.
Check out our new training courses and apply for one today! Scholarships may be available for low-income immigrant and refugee women.
