Aug 19 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Join us at this introductory information session at YWCA Madison Empowerment Center. At this session you will have an opportunity to meet the YWCA Madison staff that will support you in the YWeb Career Academy program as well as the class instructor.

What is YWeb

YWeb is an employment service program that trains women and people of color to become web developers/designers. The goal of the YWeb Career Academy is to increase diversity in this area of employment. Upon completion of the course, students will have opportunities to pursue full-time permanent employment, a paid internship, or a freelance career.

We prepare, position, and support individuals into life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible. Our free to enroll, in-person program provides the technical and soft skills required to gain and sustain real employment. Then, we partner with employers and educational institutions to help students find internships, continuing education, or full-time employment depending on what is the best next step.

This program will offer a $15/hr. stipend to program participants for the time they dedicate to the class.
