Athens Financial University Celebration

29 August 2014

A coalition of supporters from various segments of the community is joining forces to help the less fortunate. To celebrate Labor Day, area businesses, nonprofit agencies and community leaders are working together to help four local women enter long-term careers.

Athens Financial University, or AFU, a pilot program organized by the Athens Area Emergency Food Bank connects women with mentors in their desired field of work. The program also provides them with clothing, food, job assistance, and financial education resources. The women will graduate Tuesday, September 2nd.
The graduates will receive certificates of completion from Athens-Clarke County Mayor Nancy Denson and U.S. Congressman Paul Broun.
