AAUW Fund for Women in Non-Traditional Careers

Established in 2017, the Battle Creek Branch of the American Association of University Women voted to be purposeful in supporting women entering the workforce in nontraditional occupations readily available in the geographic area covered by the Calhoun Intermediate School District. However, there's a low number of trained individuals, especially women, to fill those positions. The AAUW Fund for Women in Non-Traditional Careers is designed to provide educational supplemental assistance to women with things such as books, supplies, tools, licensing, journeyman's card, testing expenses, certifications, etc. The branch feels those who obtain the training they need and possess a solid work ethic will be readily employed.
