With the goal of providing information and opportunities for women to "level up," the annual mini-conference serves as an uplifting and motivating force for women to advance in their careers.
Coming soon! 2GEN will provide educational support for middle and high school students and their mothers who seek workforce credentials, associate degrees, GEDs or career advancement.
