Women in Transition

Women in Transition

Women in Transition empowers women to become economically self-sufficient and improve their lives through access to education. Women in Transition is designed to help women regain their sense of confidence, clarity and genuine well-being.

During the eleven weeks of class, you will have the opportunity to move from feeling confused about your direction in life and instead find a sense of purpose and clarity that results in your own step-by-step plan to reach your personal and career goals.
