JVS WoMentoring Program Helps Women with Work

JVS’ WoMentoring program has helped hundreds of women in crisis or transition realize their career goals and dreams through one-on-one mentoring partnerships, demonstrating the power of women helping women.

Founded twelve years ago, the program supports women seeking a new career direction while emerging from a personal or professional crisis.

Paired with a mentor who has an established career in the participant’s chosen field, each mentee works closely with her mentor and the JVS career counseling staff to reach a career milestone. Graduates have gone on to jobs in banking, government, non-profit, retail and other industries. Several have started their own businesses and have returned to become mentors themselves.WoMentoring is funded in part by Terri and Jerry Kohl, Debbie and Rick Powell, Union Bank, Wells Fargo and the WoMentoring Leadership Network.
