The Skills Workshop at Sense of Community

Empowering Skills, Building Self-Sufficiency for Iraqi Refugees

Step into the vibrant heart of the Skills Workshop at Sense of Community. Here, amidst the focused determination and the camaraderie of participants, a story of resilience unfolds. Iraqi refugees with a wealth of skills and experience find a space to hone their talents, learn new trades, and pave the path to self-sufficiency.

Preserving Skills, Building New Dreams:

War and displacement often disrupt lives and sever connections to professional opportunities. The Skills Workshop at Sense of Community provides a platform for Iraqi refugees to revive their existing skills, be it carpentry, metalwork, or any other valuable trade. This not only helps them maintain a vital link to their professional identities but also allows them to contribute their expertise to their new communities.

More Than Just Skills: A Path to Empowerment:

The Skills Workshop is more than just a place to learn and practice a trade. It’s a space where participants can build confidence, develop their entrepreneurial spirit, and chart a course for a brighter future. Our dedicated staff offers training in business planning, marketing strategies, and even basic financial literacy. This empowers participants to take control of their economic futures and support themselves and their families.
