Generation WORKS

February 6, 2016

Women of all ages came together to lead the community (yes, men and boys were in attendance) to make a positive impact on this city. After a nice breakfast and lots of excitement, everyone set out to make an impact on their various designated work sites. We teamed up with agencies all over Jacksonville to find a large span of projects.

There were gardening/beautification projects in various Duval County schools, painting at the Hubbard House, sorting food for those who are hungry at Feeding Northeast Florida. No matter what type of work you were looking for, there was a project right for you.

We look forward to seeing you again next year for Generation WORKS to once again make a lasting impact. Click here for more information about Generation WORKS 2017.

GENERATION WORKS is about the way women work and wisely lead, creating transformational change.

GENERATION WORKS is an action-oriented program that harnesses the energy and interest in community and social change.

GENERATION WORKS galvanizes the leadership of women and girls who will wire, weld, wash and “work” their magic to transform our communities in a dedicated day of service. Whether it will be weeding a community garden, the cleaning of a community space or painting of a school, the wonder of W and willingness of WOW will come together and lead the way.
