OUR FEATURE PROGRAMS
Ms. Sarah’s Career Development Academy (LifeWorks)
is an ongoing training and professional career development program designed to teach, mentor, and enhance personal leadership and entrepreneurship skills. The program is committed to empowering and supporting women with career development planning, career coaching and training, personal growth skills development, and education focused on motivation, organization, and decision-making tools.
The WOV Community Give Back Programs
are an ongoing social grassroots effort designed to give back to the community. The programs operate from a single principle: “We all have a social and personal responsibility to give back to those who are in need.” The programs use volunteer support and external resources and talents to improve the lives of individuals and families by building stronger communities. The four primary community give back programs include: the food and clothing drive, the back-to-school “Empowering Our Youth” drive, and the Holiday Family Affair.
The WOV Volunteer Program
is an ongoing annual community program that supports a key mission of the foundation—community outreach and volunteerism. The program seeks to foster the empowerment of women through the commitment of community service.
The WOV Empowerment Forum
is an annual professional, educational, and social fundraising event that celebrates visionary women leaders. The Forum is designed to bring together a wide range of multidisciplinary professionals, sponsors, nonprofit agencies, organizational business partners, achievement-orientated women, men, and youth, and people from all walks of life to empower, motivate, educate, and inspire women to become visionary leaders of tomorrow.
Greeting from our founder,
Ms. Sarah Burns-Turner
Everyday we hope you embrace the power of knowing that all things are possible. Mother Teresa tells us “Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies” and Dr. Martin Luther King says, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.” The purpose of the Women of Vision Foundation is to promote the empowerment of women through professional, educational, and social programs focused on collaborative leadership, entrepreneurship, beauty, health and wellness, and community volunteerism that collectively uplift others. We strive that we may lift you up and unleash your own inner strength as you move through love, compassion, and the wonders of divinity.
