PROGRAM: Our speaker for our speaker this Friday will be Lillian Kurek, Executive Director of Artisans for Hope in Boise.

Artisans for Hope (AfH) is a locally-run, volunteer-driven, nonprofit organization established in 2009 to offer classes, studio/work areas and opportunity for the 6,000+ refugees living in the Boise area. These classes offer supplies and instruct the refugees in the skills of sewing, commercial sewing, knitting, and jewelry making. These skills allow the refugees to create uniquely-designed products to sell and market, and, importantly, to profit from those sales. But, learning is not limited to those classes - they also learn English thru ESL classes and immersion, learn about our community and learn how to become more employable. AfH then helps them by operating as a resource for local employers who are looking to connect with and hire these trained individuals.
There will be a short Board meeting, postponed from last week, after the program on Friday.
