Leadership Training gives refugee and immigrant women the skills and confidence to be advocates for themselves, their families, and their communities. 

The goals of the Leadership Program are to:

  1.  strengthen women’s abilities to be leaders in their homes, businesses and communities;
  2. improve the communities in which refugee and immigrant women live;
  3.  increase advocacy by the refugee and immigrant women and their community members;
  4.  increase their capacity to access community resources; and
