According to the Sparta Independent, Project Self-Sufficiency announced the launching of their Higher Opportunities for Women (HOW) program which combines computer skills and off-site internships.
This Thursday, Jan. 30 at 10 a.m., there will be an Open House for the program that will prepare women who have "been out of the workforce or underemployed to seek entry-level office administrative positions."
It is expected that women who participate in the HOW program will gain 80 hours of computer skills training such as Microsoft Office software and more. This program will also include 40 hours of classroom instruction and 120 hours of an unpaid externship.
Project Self-Sufficiency has been working with local businesses, non-profit organizations and government entities to provide these participants with externships.
The HOW program will officially launch on Feb. 11 at 127 Mill Street in Newton.
