Become a NEW Woman

What makes skilled blue-collar work a good choice for women?
 
High pay. Wages in your first year will range from $10 – $17. Once a woman completes the apprenticeship program, she can earn as much as $45.00/hr.
 
Excellent medical benefits.
 
Pensions and paid annuities.
 
Training. Many blue-collar jobs offer technical classroom training as well as on-the-job training

NEW helps women face the challenges of working in a blue-collar field:
 
Construction work starts very early; NEW helps women find early morning childcare.
 
Blue collar professions are physically and mentally demanding. Most jobs require early hours and lots of lifting and carrying. NEW helps women prepare for these challenges.
 
Year-round outdoor work is required in most jobs.
 
Less than 3% of all construction workers are women. NEW provides a support system to help women prepare to work in a predominately male environment.

NEW will help you determine if you are right for this program and help you succeed in your new nontraditional career.
