Mission

Turnaround, Inc. Workforce Empowerment Program (TAI-WEP) is a designated 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, founded in 2015.

Our mission is to counteract cyclical poverty, by providing skills training and immediate employment to Washington, DC residents who are overcoming significant barriers to full-time employment. Our operations are based in Washington’s Ward 7, which has an unemployment rate more than twice the national average. We give preference to residents of this ward who meet our eligibility requirements.

TAI-WEP’s vision is to create a specialized workforce that is both professionally equipped, and personally empowered.

We facilitate an environment, laden with opportunities, that propels our Trainees into a new career, and helps them fully embrace their potential to create a fully self-reliant future.
