We’re excited to announce that Sixpenny has selected Warren Village as their inaugural impact partner.
Sixpenny, a high-end furniture company, knew that Warren Village would be a great impact companion when they learned about our College-to-Career program—an innovative collaboration that propels parents into sustainable careers where they can earn a living wage. The organization connects parents to workforce training programs that teach the skills necessary to maintain jobs that provide family-sustaining wages.
The College-to-Career curriculum is rigorous and participating parents are extremely dedicated to their studies, but the current learning environment is an uninspired landscape of folding tables and plastic chairs. While Warren Village dedicates their resources to the most important components of learning—the people and the curriculum—Sixpenny is set on transforming the educational space into one that matches the enthusiasm and hard work of the parents.
