Abstract: The Women Transitioning to Trades and Employment (WTTE) project was born from a desire to help women in precarious social positions escape the social factors that kept them there. The program was envisioned as a practical way of working with women who were marginalized in various ways—dealing with poverty, interruptions in schooling, and the devastating impacts of violence—and helping those same women with further training and employment prospects to help them get out of those situations. Students—recruited from shelters, employment centers and programs across the GTA—are enrolled in an intensive two year program at George Brown, buoyed by extended social support and counseling opportunities.
