20 Years Changing Women’s Lives and Redefining Women’s Work and Youth’s Education

 SAVE THE DATE-Friday October 28, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.

At DoubleTree by Hilton – San Pedro

 2800 Via Cabrillo-Marina, San Pedro, CA 90731

Here are four reasons to support the work of WINTER!


  1. Your customers, suppliers and strategic partners are a reflection of Los Angeles population that is 50% female. Supporting an inclusive workforce will help your organization lead in your market.
  2. Your customers are changing and so are their needs and expectations for products and services. A diverse workforce will help you understand, interface, and respond to customer and community needs.
  3. The workforce demographics are changing. To attract top talent, your organization must be the best place to work to ensure your business’s success, and that means marketing and recruiting local community members that are skilled to enter your field.
  4. Your competitive advantage is to become the leader in innovation, creativity, problem solving, and flexibility and you need a 21st century workforce to take you there.


WINTER is the only organization that provides industry specific job training for women and youth in our community in the formal pre-apprenticeship education sector at the local and State level to increase diversity and inclusiveness in career and technical education, as well as in construction and building trades, environmental technology and public utilities for women.


Your sponsorship of the Event will allow you to connect to individuals from the government, education, non-profit, and corporate sectors from all over the county. In addition, your support in this tough economic time provides educational incentives and tools and equipment that help women and students complete our programs, stay in school and receive a high school diploma and pre-apprenticeship training and join the workforce prepared to succeed.


These individuals are the ones that are the future diverse workforce at the local level, and is up to  us to provide this opportunity to advance their knowledge, skills, and abilities to promote equitable, high-skilled future employees for your company. Your participation will allow you to highlight your business as a national diversity leader; help develop your workforce of the future by inspiring women and youth of today.

Superheroes Campaign $84.00 a month makes you a Superheroine or Superhero!

When we opened Rosie the Riveter YouthBuild Program, we made a commitment to students that we would provide them with:

  •          Ongoing relationships with caring adults
  •          A rigorous academic program
  •          Access to an education that lead to college or careers requiring certification
  •          A structured gang free refuge, that encourage creative and free flowing activities and
  •          An opportunity to become involved in their communities, through community service

However, in order to keep our promise,we need your help, convinced that within each of us resides a hero, a person dedicated to making the world in which we live, a place where equality and justice prevails.  I ask you to close your eyes in memory of the hero (real or fictional) that made a difference in your life; think about the traits that made them your hero/heroine, grab those traits and hold them close to your heart, and unleashing the hero/heroine from deep within yourself.

As the hero/heroine within you unfurls, think about the young women that are waiting for a hero today, with them in mind, we are launching our “Super Hero and Heroine” campaign and I invite you to become one of 100 Super Heroes and Heroines that will contribute $1,000.00 (or more if you are so inspired) to help keep the hope and dream of a better tomorrow alive in 100 forgotten and down-trodden adolescents who deserve the opportunity to become the best that they can be with the mentoring and support of caring, unselfish adults.

$1,000.00 tax-deductible, donated by you, will allow us to keep our doors open, figuratively and literally, and fill our classroom with 100 students who have drop out of school and possibly society.  Your donation will help 100 students live a more productive and contributing life within our communities.  Can you believe it?  ONLY $1,000.00 will save 100 “at-risk” students.

Your tax-deductible pledge will help us reach our goal.  Enclosed please find your pledge card, where you can commit to a single payment or 12 monthly easy payments of $84.00/month. We accept checks, money orders, or credit cards. Please make your checks payable to Rosie the Riveter High School c/o WINTER and also check for matching funds through your employer. Many companies have matching programs which you may not be aware of.

If you require additional information, have questions or comments about our programs or this campaign, contact us directly by phone at 213-749-3970 or e-mail atgalancid@winterwomen.org.
