Oregon Tradeswomen Inc.


To promote success for women in the trades through education, leadership and mentorship.

Bottom Line for Portland

Oregon Tradeswomen moves women out of poverty and into living-wage jobs in just seven weeks. The women who attend OT's no-cost, pre-apprenticeship class and receive job-placement services can immediately earn $30,000/year or more and become completely financially self-sufficient.

“There are no words to describe the empowerment and confidence of finding a path to success and self-sufficiency; or the pride that wells up inside knowing I’m making a difference in my community and my children's lives by giving them financial stability and greater opportunities.” —Courtnee Holm, graduate and electrical apprentice.
