Work Support Services: Business & Career

Work Support 1:1 sessions address work support needs and provide guidance with work-search and career-related matters. Volunteers with professional expertise in these areas conduct individual sessions to guide participants with pertinent information, career exploration, job search strategies, resume preparation, cover letter wording, and – among other things – job interview coaching. The agenda for these sessions is determined by the participant. Through a partnership with the Falmouth Service Center, we are now offering Work Support consultations on the 3rd Tuesday of every month in Falmouth. All sessions are scheduled and can be arranged by calling 508-430-8111. Click here for detailed flyer.

Individualized guidance on business start up and growth is offered through special work support volunteers who have experience in running a business, as well as through financial empowerment volunteers and attorneys who have business knowledge.

GROW (Get Results with Others’ Wisdom) Groups are a new offering for women business owners.  It is a facilitated peer-mentoring forum to empower women with the support and tools they need to be successful in growing their business.  Groups meet for 3-hours monthly over 6-months and participants commit to attend each meeting. We are currently offering Information Sessions to introduce our Fall 2017 offering of GROW. Application and flyer here.  Call or email Elisa at WE CAN:

Suit Yourself enables WE CAN program participants to – at no cost to themselves – obtain women’s clothing and accessories to augment their personal and/or professional presentation from any of the thrift stores partnering in the Suit Yourself program. WE CAN conducts outreach to encourage donations of new or gently used in-season women’s clothing and accessories to our partner thrift stores. In return, participating thrift stores honor WE CAN gift certificates. WE CAN program participants can then shop in any Suit Yourself partner store conveniently located near them. Click here for a list of participating thrift stores. To learn more about the Suit Yourself Program, contact WE CAN at 508-430-8111.
