February 2015 WERC Graduates.

WERC is a private, not-for-profit organization that works to advance women's success in the workplace by building their economic and personal independence.

Since 1988, WERC has provided quality workforce development services to over 6,700 women from both Albany and Rensselaer Counties who have lost their source of income upon the death, divorce, separation, disability, or dislocation of a spouse or who are single mothers.

Outstanding Results

WERC is Thankful for Your Support!

Thank you for your support ensuring women who need to return to the workforce will have the resources to obtain the training, skills and confidence needed to find employment in today's competitive job market.

"As a May 2014 graduate of the Customer Service Training Program, I would like to share with you how this amazing program changed my life.

After being in a career that I loved and was very passionate about for 15 years. I found myself out of work for almost a year. I was feeling very depressed and hopeless, with a feeling of not having any direction. I asked myself what am I going to do? I had never been faced with having to upload a resume, or write cover letter's. With very limited computer skills, and computers now being the foundation of our everyday life, and used to communicate to everyone, everywhere, I was feeling overwhelmed, and very scared.

Then I came across a bright yellow flyer for the WERC program. So I called, and it was one of the best decision's that I ever made. This program was everything I hoped for and more. It gave me the computer skills that I was lacking. It gave me the confidence I had lost, and the tools I needed to be successful in returning to work. Marj and Beth show patience, understanding,and are so up-lifting, and very supportive. They make learning fun and exciting. I can honestly say WERC works."
