In November, 10 women graduated from the first online delivery of Power Up! The Saint John Women’s Empowerment Network team worked at creating an adapted version that would deliver the same outcomes and created a feeling of connection to all participants while working virtually.  Offering the program online produced a unique opportunity for participants to explore technology in ways that most had not done before. 11 guest speakers from the community joined virtually, covering a diverse array of topics ranging from learning how to properly budget, to learning about the abundance of opportunities in the trades, to identifying and learning how to overcome barriers to employment. Even online, participants were able to make connections with their communities, one another, and most importantly with themselves.
