Building Pathways to Employment

Published: 02/19/19

The South East Lake Collective brings together community-based assets for building concrete pathways where women can thrive and lead productive lives. The Collective’s Women’s Worth Program is an innovative visioning and planning partnership between Promoting Empowerment and Enrichment Resources, Inc. (P.E.E.R. Inc.), Urban Collective and the National Hook Up of Black Women (NHBW). The Collective is creating a pathway to employment for 10-14 women by providing mentors, access to educational and employment opportunities, personal development classes and enrollment in a job certification program in the South East Lake area of Birmingham. This project is a strategic initiative developed by Gregory C. Townsend, MPPM, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Change Leader (CoHL) and funded by the foundation. The Women’s Worth Program is removing stigmas and creating opportunities for women to see their potential for building a culture of change in their community.
