Arizona Women's Education and Employment (AWEE)


What is AWEE?


Arizona Women’s Education and Employment (AWEE) makes it possible for generous people in our community to help women overcome obstacles and get better jobs, creating better tomorrows for themselves, their families and their communities. Because of our long-term partnerships with Arizona’s top employers, clients are able to meet with our state’s best organizations. Providing someone with the opportunity to earn dignity through work gives them the power to transform their life.

Since 1981, the AWEE program has helped more than 200,000 clients find better jobs for better tomorrows. It’s what makes AWEE a trusted, evidence-based workforce development provider in Arizona.

In 2017, Arizona Women’s Education and Employment (AWEE) merged with A New Leaf to increase community outreach and expand key services across the Central Arizona. A New Leaf now operates AWEE as a key community program.
