Training Center

The sewing training center is the beginning of each woman's journey.  When she arrives at Emmanuel Training Center, she will meet with Ismael, our on-staff social worker. Next, she'll complete an application and begin her 30 day trial period. At the end of this time, she'll have the opportunity to enroll as a One Thread apprentice. 

 

WE OFFER EACH WOMAN IN OUR PROGRAM:

*A full year's tuition at the Sewing Training Center

*Fabric to learn, practice, and create clothing

*Meals for the women and their children

*Tuition assistance for their children while in our program

We offer each woman upon graduation:

*A government issued seamstress license

*A personal sewing machine

*Acceptance into our graduate school at Le Boutique
