Fundrasier to Empower Women and Community
Noe Valley Merchants and Professionals, The Noe Valley Town Square and The Noe Valley Association are on a mission to sponsor four young ladies on their road to acheiving an elevated education and practical skills, so they are well equipped to make a difference in the world. 
We are teaming up with Imacculate Conception Academy to enable these young ladies to complete a Work-Study Program to pay for their education. They will be active in Noe Valley working for the benefit of  the Noe Valley residents, community and merchants while enriching programs at our Noe Valley Town Square!

We help not only our community, but also empower low income families to provide their kids with an education without the burden of the cost . 
How it works 
The students work at local corporate and community offices throughout the Bay Area. We join jundreds of SF corporate|community work study partners who are currently enrolled in this fine initiative. See current sponsors here. 
This program places students in entry-level, clerical positions. 
A team of four ICA students shares one full-time job, with academic schedules structured so that students never miss class.

Sponsors contract directly with ICA, which serves as the actual employer of each student. 
Why we need YOU and your generous donations
It takes a village and in this case Noe Valley and beyond! Please give generously. All donations go directly to ICA and are 100% applied to the student's tuition. 
Thanks so much, together we can help empower kids and our communities AND it just feels so awesome to give to such a great cause!
