WE DRUG TEST

YWCA’s pre-apprenticeship program complies with the industry standard of zero tolerance for drug use. This includes marijuana. The YWCA conducts random drug tests during the period class is in session. If you test positive at any time, you will be dismissed from class and asked to re-enroll at a different time when you are able to pass the drug tests.

The Mission of YWCA Rhode Island is to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice freedom and dignity for all.

President Biden will be getting his coronavirus booster shot today. The White House announced Biden will get it "in line with the CDC's and FDA's recommendations." Those over 65 who have received two Pfizer shots are eligible for the boosters, along with other high risk populations.       The CDC is releasing several studies showing that enforcing mask-wearing in schools helps reduce the spread of COVID-19. One of the studies, which looked at one-thousand schools nationwide, showed 113 of the 191 COVID outbreaks that occurred between mid-July through August were in schools that did not enforce mask mandates. It's a hot button issue in several states including Texas, Florida and Arizona, which have tried to bar school districts from enforcing mask policies.       The man who shot President Ronald Reagan 40 years ago is winning back his eventual freedom. A judge approved John Hinckley's unconditional release next year. It's scheduled to happen in June, but he'll continue to be monitored until then.       The Senate will take a big test vote later today on extending government funding and the debt limit. Sixty votes are needed to move the measure forward and Republicans are threatening to withhold support. Meantime, the Treasury Department has warned the U.S. could default on its debt obligations next month without a hike or extension of the federal debt limit.       The FBI is now in charge of looking for Gabby Petito's fiance. A North Port, Florida, Police spokesman told Fox News the search for Brian Laundrie will be "scaled back" as the federal agency takes over. The search for Laundrie has centered around the vast Carlton Reserve after Petito was found dead in Wyoming earlier this month.       Beyond Meat is set to launch a line of meatless chicken tenders nationwide. The alternative meat maker announced its newest meat-free product will be hitting stores in October. The meatless chicken tenders will be available at select Walmart and Giant Foods locations next month.
