New England Learning Center for Women in Transition

Valley Women's History Collaborative (VWHC) is working with NELCWIT to train students to collect the history of the founders of the New England Center for Women in Transition. The resulting oral histories are then made available to the organization for development purposes, fundraising or record keeping. The resulting oral histories, once collected and approved, are also made available through the VWHC records to the general public.
