West Virginia Women Work is striving to fulfill our mission during the COVID-19 crisis. As of May 1, 2020, we have decided to postpone the Step Up for Women Advanced Manufacturing Programs originally slated to begin in June of 2020 until further notice. At this time, the Construction course scheduled to begin in August is still accepting applications. We are developing new ways to serve our community while practicing social distancing. Please sign up to receive our emails on our website or follow us on Facebook at /wvwomenwork where we will announce a community needs survey and our plans going forward. Thank you to our staff and community for continuing to support our goal of empowering women during this difficult time.


Currently West Virginia Women Work is offering two programs,the Step Up for Women Construction Pre-Apprenticeship, which is available at two locations in WV, and the Step Up for Women Advanced Manufacturing Pre-Apprenticeship, which is also available at two locations.

Our graduate school program, Eight Penny Construction, which was open to successful graduates of the Step-Up for Women training program, is not currently in operation.
