** ANNOUNCEMENT ** – 2019 WERC Awards Luncheon

The WERC Awards Luncheon is our opportunity to acknowledge and honor several outstanding women in the Mohawk Valley, and is also an important fundraiser that helps support the services we provide.

This year we honor Barbara Brodock, the Oneida County Youth Bureau, and Regina Brown. Our Emcee is Beth Coombs, and our Keynote speaker is Kristy Lenuzza.

The WERC Awards Luncheon offers several ways to support the economic advancement of families living right here in Oneida and Herkimer counties. Your ticket purchase or donation will fund essential career counseling, training and job readiness programs, enabling our participants to gain employment and become contributing members of their community.

The POWER of 5  –  The Power of YOU!

You have the power to change the lives of women throughout our area. Join us in a new campaign to support our free job training services for women!

The Power of Five is based on the concept that small donations can make a big impact. For a donation of just $5, $10, or $20 a month (any multiple of 5) you can help a woman move from poverty to employment.
