We are so excited that The Redwood started its 5th year of the WOTM leadership group on April 26th, 2014. There was more interest from community members and partners than any year previously! We interviewed over 16 applicants, those that weren’t able to join the group expressed interest in becoming a Redwood volunteer.
The current Women on the Move group consists of 13 women who are from diverse backgrounds. Many of them have left abusive relationships and are looking to build their self-esteem, get involved in their community and make a difference in the lives of other women who have experienced violence.
We have started working our way through the curriculum and already the women are so excited about the experience. They are an extremely ambitious, amazing group who are taking full advantage of the opportunity to work together and who are so excited about setting fantastic goals for themselves. Amazingly, many of them have already fulfilled some of their goals! We could not be more excited for them to continue this year and could not be more excited for us to be able to witness their success and walk alongside them.
