Next Step – Women’s Job Readiness Program

ACCESS will offer Next Step, an employment readiness program to provide financial literacy education and support to survivors of domestic violence in Ames and surrounding communities. The project includes three components: a job readiness skills group, financial support for job seeking/advancement activities, and individualized support provided by certified domestic abuse advocates. Funding will be used for the purchase of laptops for job seeking activities, transportation, marketing, and miscellaneous expenses.
