West Virginia Women Work is a statewide nonprofit organization that supports and advocates for the education, employment and economic equity for all women. We achieve this goal through a comprehensive program of recruitment, training, referrals, placements, networking, advocacy, retention activities and public workshops.
While the nonprofit’s headquarters is in Morgantown, there are presently two active skilled trades training sites (Step-Up for Women Construction) located in the state – North Central West Virginia (Morgantown) and Kanawha Valley (Charleston). This program boasts an 80% job placement rate with new graduates earning a minimum of $3 more per hour than a traditional job.
WVWW has a new pilot training site located in Huntington, WV. This site is the Step Up for Women Advanced Manufacturing Pre-Apprenticeship Program. Women in this program will learn about high tech (CNC) machining along with the resource classes offered at our construction training sites.
