Featured Program:
P.E.T. Program
The P.E.T. program is a structured, hands-on curriculum consisting of a 4 - 12-week jewelry design course followed by internships. 

It is specifically designed to inspire confidence in women in crisis, teach them key life skills, and engage them in focused, positive, career oriented, and educational program. 

Our ultimate goal with this program is to use the resources of Gifted Hands to provide job skills and life skills to P.E.T. program participants and prepare them for personal and professional success and for appropriate entry-level employment. 
Friendship happens for students and mentors
