HopeWorks Plus Workshop
HopeWorks will hold its first HopeWorks Plus Workshop on July 17. This all day event will feature classes and workshops on credit repair, financial aid, and getting a suspended driver’s license reinstated. A representative from MLGW will talk about understanding your utility bill and ways to reduce it, and we will have a food coach talking about how to love foods you hate. We are excited about the opportunity to offer these different types of workshops to our alumni.

Staff Tours Nucor Steel
In an effort to promote women in non-traditional fields, the HopeWorks staff was invited to tour Nucor Steel. While being impressed with their facility, we were more impressed with the way they treated their team members. There was a great sense of loyality and comradery among the people we met. We are hopeful about building a relationship with this company for our graduates.
