March is National Women’s History Month. We’ve found many ways to celebrate the past successes of women in the past three weeks, but what really excites us is this: the chance to celebrate the future successes of women moving forward.

Here at GoodwillNyNj, we’re especially proud of our Beyond Jobs program. This program supports New York City single mothers 18 years or older in navigating their individual career path. The Goodwill program provides a holistic integration of career services with family and financial strengthening services.

Did you know?Women are projected to account for 51% in total labor force growth between now and 2018.
