Last Friday, six exceptional women graduated from the program at a ceremony in front of friends and family. All six women secured employment and will be continuing their new careers in social service. Graduates will be joining the Center for Young Women’s Development, the City and County of Alameda, the City and County of San Francisco, Arriba Juntos and HPP!
As noted by Alma Vasquez, CHW Assistant Manager (and a former CHW), “In this role, we are all united by one common goal and that is opportunity — the opportunity to transform our lives and the lives of the people we serve.”
We are awed by our graduates. Not only did they work as CHWs over the past year, but they also went to school and completed internships – all while raising families.
“Thank you for your passion – your dedication – and for teaching me something new each day.”
