What We Do

WWIN Programs

WWIN believes in the power of determined women to transform their lives and the course of their families’ lives for generations to come. We address a deep need in society, providing women a hand up to improve their futures. This in turn strengthens their families and our society as a whole.

WWIN wants women to be able to not only reach for the stars, but to achieve her dreams. We will walk with a woman on her path to success, supporting her, advocating for her, and providing her with opportunities and inspiration along the way.

Pathways to Success

The Pathways to Success program provides a woman with the opportunity to gain a sense of who she is, to feel free to make choices and  informed decisions about her life, to set ambitious goals for herself and take action on those goals. Women who participate in this program, with the support of a professional certified coach, will create a personalized roadmap to achieve economic stability. Learn more about the Pathways to Success program coming Summer 2019!

Star Scholars

This program removes a financial barrier to women seeking the higher education they need to attain a living wage career. Star Scholars receive up to $5,000 per year, or $20,000 over their undergraduate college career that they may use for tuition and required books at accredited Washington colleges and universities.
