A new beginning is possible.
Appalachian women are courageous and strong. They support their families and communities. But low self-esteem, past trauma, addiction or a lack of job skills can keep them from making changes they want to see in their lives.
The New Opportunity School for Women holds space for under-resourced women to do intense self-development work. To rebuild their confidence and reclaim their voices. To think about where they want to go and how to get there. To identify strengths and set goals. To start moving forward.
“I have learned the treasure of contentment with myself.—Charlene Green, NOSW 2010 Graduate
That is freedom.”
