First Step Organizing Workshops

The First Step program is a 14-week job training program offered by the Coalition for the Homeless that prepares women to enter the workforce and earn a living wage. 
 
NAPO-NY's involvement with First Step began in 2000 as a one-day project to organize their offices, clothing donation storage room and supply room. Over the years, it has evolved into a program of bi-monthly workshops and is the centerpiece of our chapter's community service program. 
 
NAPO-NY contributes to two aspects of the program: 
  1. Presenting organizing workshops focused on general organizing, time management and paper management
  2. Sorting professional clothing donations to help program participants find outfits to wear to job interviews
