The Get A Job Kit featured on NBC’s Today Show
“Our young adults are having a tough time competing for fewer part-time jobs and summer employment. We provide The Get A Job Kit to our students to boost their self-esteem and get a head start. Job search skills are timeless.”
— New Orleans, Louisiana
The Get A Job Kit made a special appearance on the Today Show recently, when Women’s Empowerment–the non-profit organization that produces the Kit as a solution to end homelessness–was featured in a “Hope to It” segment.
As host Natalie Morales notes in the piece, each homeless woman who graduates from the Women’s Empowerment job-readiness program receives a Get A Job Kit–and nearly 90% of those women secure a job or enroll in training soon after. That is a testament to the power of the program, as well as the usefulness of the Kit!
Though the Today Show segment does not mention it, all of The Get A Job Kits are assembled by graduates of Women’s Empowerment who are developing advanced job skills as part of a paid training program preparing them for lasting employment.
