Description

Are you looking for an opportunity to jump start your life and develop the skills to live independently and pursue a new career? If you are a young woman between the ages of 18 and 32, the Empowered Living Academy may be just the answer! The Empowered Living Academy was founded in the fall of 2014 through a partnership between Wellspring Living, the YMCA, and Randstad US. These three organizations saw the need to provide a comprehensive program to provide HOPE to struggling young women in need. The Empowered Living Academy provides young women with the courage to move forward and the confidence to succeed through providing the following programs: – A General Education Diploma program for young women who have not completed high school. – Life skills classes (Healthy Relationships, Personal Finances, Basic Household Duties, etc) – Health and Fitness Classes (including a membership to metro Atlanta YMCAs) – Career Readiness Training (Interviewing Skills, Resume Writing, Microsoft Office Training, etc) – Apprenticeships and the opportunity to obtain a ‘living-wage” job in a field of interest -- Weekly Individual Therapy and Groups Classes are scheduled for nine-week sessions M-Th 9am-4pm and Fridays 9am-12noon.
