Women and Work Conference

Thanks to funds from Tri Kappa and Muncie Rotary Club, TEAMwork is presenting a “Women and Work” conference especially targeted to women who are struggling or need a better job. 

The event, offered at two different times, will give women an opportunity to focus on being better prepared to win a job or become more successful in a job they already have. There will be employers sharing what they look for in employees and meeting one-on-one to help people tweak or build a resume.

There will be fashion dos and don’ts and interviewing tips. In addition, we will focus on the two areas that can be most troublesome for success in the workplace: transportation and childcare.

Both sessions are at the Patterson Building on the corner of Main and Walnut. Dates are:

Saturday, February 21–12:30-4 p.m.
Wednesday, February 25–10 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

RSVP as soon as possible so that you don’t miss this opportunity.

Call 747-7158 and anyone can help you.


Local Stories of Struggle and Hope Video Vignettes

Fear.  Frustration.  Love.  Tenacity.  Defeat.  Isolation.  Anger.  Hope.


Do you know people in poverty?  Do you know their stories?  Do you know how they feel about the situations in which they find themselves?

These stories are interwoven with the hope of clients, volunteers and staff people who believe that building relationships and believing in the power of people to create a better world for themselves is key to crafting a better life.
