The Women's Opportunity Center

The road to entrepreneurship can start in many places. As we learned at the WISE conference, some women start when something changed in their lives. Many learned the basic skills about running their own business by working with someone else. And before that, there was the need to find a job where the learning could begin.

Sometimes finding that first job can be difficult, especially when you don't have the right skills. In Tompkins County, the Women's Opportunity Center is "non-profit organization dedicated to helping women and men overcome obstacles to gain employment. Of the various opportunities that the center provides, each is a unique and holistic experience that prepares every individual for today’s challenges in the workplace." The Women's Opportunity Center is part of the statewide Displaced Homemakers Program, which includes 23 centers across New York State.

If you're in Tompkins County and looking to get into the workforce (and on your way to becoming an entrepreneur), check with the Women's Opportunity Center to see what services they may be able to offer you.
