iSisters’ programs provide real, measurable results to the women who attend them. For our learners who often may feel they have no way out of their current situation, being able to make the first step up the ladder of success to a new future is an important outcome of our courses. Time and time again, our learners reinforce that in addition to the technical skills and knowledge they gain, the most important achievement is building their own self-confidence.
A newcomer to Canada, Kim had been working in healthcare and knew nothing about computers. She wanted to get work but struggled without technology skills. “Without you and your organization, I felt very isolated and mentally distressed because everything around me required technology to get in touch.” Now, after attending our Career Connections program, Kim is applying for new positions and is optimistic about her new career. “Before your course, I did not think that I could change my career because most of my experiences are in healthcare and I thought I would have to work in this field until I retired. Now I can say that I know computers well enough to communicate with the rest of the people in our community. Your course will help lots of people to get back on their feet or change their career like me!”
