Our Organization

Live & Learn is a non profit organization for women that was founded in 2012 to empower women in the Phoenix-metro area. It began as an initiative of the Arizona Foundation for Women and became an independent organization in 2015. Live & Learn continues to grow every year to meet the financial education needs and career training for women in our community.

Our Goal

Our goal is to empower each of our clients to create a better life and a better future for herself.

…It’s not just the financial help Live and Learn gives you, it’s the support. When I wanted to give up, when I thought I couldn’t do it anymore, they still believed in me.

What Live and Learn Does

Participants who are ready to take the next step towards women’s education empowerment, financial independence and career guidance are referred to our program by our community partners. We interview and select the best training program for women who show a determination to improve their lives. Together, we develop an education and career plan in an area with high employment demand.

Live & Learn staff provides ongoing career guidance and support for each client along their journey. At the same time, we work with our community partners to offer the best training program for women and a range of life-skill classes and workshops that will help in this process. We are the cheerleader, advocate and mentor for our clients!
