"For years I never knew my purpose, and what I could give back to my community. It was hearing from the instructors and other women that made me see that I was important. Getting the knowledge and strength from other women was esteem building. They gave me the confidence I needed to go out and get the job I not only wanted, but deserved."
"A big weight was lifted from my shoulders, knowing that after all the knowledge I learned during the 3 weeks, I can finally get back on my feet and be more confident in starting a new route in my life."
"Niagara Women’s Enterprise Centre opened new doors, introduced and connected me to a new career path. It has always been important to me to work in a career field that enabled me to be part of helping other people. The training was provided in a safe atmosphere while providing direction and contacts that I would not have been aware of otherwise."
When I took the Code Pink program, I felt a little overwhelmed at the idea of learning coding. Once I was in the class, the instructor was knowledgeable, and went at a pace that allowed us to ask questions and provided help when needed. The class had a great pace for beginners, and I found it fun to create my webpage and edit it and make updates in real time.
"I would recommend this program to anyone. It really was life changing for me and, I know, for the other women in the group. It far exceeded my expectations. The support from Brenda, Carrie and Debbie is commendable. The variety of facilitators, quality of material and skills gained are all important tools I can take with me moving forward."
