Sky's the Limit Album > STL and Kevin & Stephanie Weekes donate 25 laptops to YWCA!
YWCA JUMP (Join, Unify, Motivate, & Participate) is an Immigrant Settlement and Adaptation Program designed to help young newcomer women overcome barriers to employment and settle prosperously in Canada. The JUMP program is available in both Scarborough and Etobicoke.

YWCA JUMP serves young women 13-24 who are permanent residents, convention refugees or those working under the live-in caregiver program. JUMP offers one on one, group workshops, and self-directed training in software to assist their clients in using Microsoft Office programs, improve their typing skills, conducting online research, job searching, preparing resumes, as well as writing, language and literacy related matters.

STL thanks Kevin & Stephanie Weekes for their generous donation - we couldn't have done it without you!
