The 2019 Blessons Auxiliary Board, Women's Wellness Board and our Advisory Committee are a collection of passionate professionals that through volunteering who believe that Blessons for Women is a catalyst for transforming and empowering the lives of women who have a vision to succeed inspite of obstacles.
We believe that:
Women need to be treated with dignity, respect and honesty. Women deserve to be happy and healthy. Women should be empowered and self-sufficient. Women should explore and develop their spiritual side. Women deserve to learn and work together to develop their SOCIAL, SPIRITUAL and ECONOMIC POTENTIAL. Intercultural exchanges, break down stereotypes, expand horizons and raise consciousness. If you educate a Woman you educate a Family. Community is essential to personal growth and in fostering women as agents of change.
"When you're able to view painful lessons as blessings, they become blessons. Instead of getting back, GIVE back." - Founder, Blessons for Women
Free Mentorship For Women by Women: "What's Your BS?" - A Women's Blessons Story: FREE GROUP SUPPORT: Our Women Only circles provide therapeutic group support, coping skills examination, relaxation techniques practice, self-exploration, exposure to different perspectives, opportunity to practice social skills, empowerment and inspiration. What’s Your BS Women’s Circle is a safe space where women who care about meaningful connections and self-love gather to support, inspire, and learn from each other’s Blessons.
FREE EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS & WELLNESS CLINICS: Blessons is dedicated to empower women of all ages through monthly personal and professional development workshop, provided for FREE. We value the importance of building self-confidence in a woman and providing them with resources in order to guide them in discovering and fulfilling true potential through several diverse events.
We believe that education sets in motion a virtuous spiral: girls and women gain greater knowledge, skills, self-confidence and capabilities, improving their own life prospects—and, in turn, an educated woman provides better nutrition, health care, and education for her family. Education enables a woman to take greater control of her life and gain inclusion in decision-making processes, which unleashes her potential to contribute socially and economically to her family’s and community’s well being.
BLESSONS SCHOLARSHIPS FOR WOMEN PROGRAM:
Regardless of background and study interests, there are Blessons Scholarships available for women trying to re-enter or advance themselves in the job market by obtaining a higher education or new skill. We support women who want to attain a higher education and training in order to improve their economic status. Funded by donations with an intent to provide scholarships to women 25 years of age or older who are interested in finishing their higher education and advancing their career, Blessons Scholarships for Women Awards can help them fund their higher education.
Life gets in the way for a number of women. In addition to challenging life lessons such as; cancer, mental illness, physical or emotional abuse, sex trafficking, discrimination and isolation due to sexual orientation, or being a first-generation female immigrant, they may also have kids, get involved with careers and simply push school off until later. When the time comes to finally go back and get a degree or pursue a new skill or trade to get back into the workforce, it can be cost-prohibitive to do so. Blessons Scholarships for Women applications are accepted through two cycles each year. We welcome accredited Trade, Vocational & Tech School/Program female students to apply.
