WWW has made a positive difference in the Triad.

 

The mission of WWW is to improve the quality of life for women, children, and teachers in our community.  Qualified women seeking economic independence will be empowered through specialized training, mentoring, and resource development in daycare centers and schools.  Through this program, children and teachers will be given extra assistance, attention, and reinforcement in both instructional and non-institutional environments. 

Eighty-five  women have graduated from the program. Many  of those are employed in the Triad area. Graduates have been hired by the Greensboro Transit Authority, the Department of Motor Vehicles, retail stores, and day care centers in Greensboro. Several have opened their own businesses. A few have gone to college for a degree in education and one is working on her  Masters Degree.
