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 Trump is blaming China for the U.S. hitting 200-thousand coronavirus deaths. Trump called the death toll "a shame," but added the number would have been more than two-million if the response wasn't done "properly." The President then attacked China again, saying they "let this happen." The U.S. leads the world in both total cases and number of deaths from the disease.       President Trump will reportedly roll out his health care plan in the coming weeks. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany [[ MACK-en-ay-nee ]] explained Tuesday "additional health care steps" would be laid out soon. McEnany noted certain aspects of his plan have already been public, including lowering drug costs and telemedicine.        The wife of the late Senator John McCain is backing Joe Biden. Cindy McCain said on Twitter the former VP is the only candidate in the race who will stand up for our values as a nation. The longtime Republican notes she and Biden don't always see eye-to-eye on the issues, but she said Biden is good and honest and will lead the nation with dignity.        Federal agents in Chicago are asking any minors who may be a victim of Netflix "Cheer" star Jerry Harris' sex crimes to come forward. People can go on a "Seeking Victim Information" web page specifically created to gather evidence in Harris' case to identify any minors who may have had inappropriate contact with Harris. The 21-year-old is accused of coercing minors to send him nude photos and videos.        The CDC is out with new guidance for Halloween in hopes of preventing trick-or-treating becoming a super spreader event. It says some of the high risk activities to avoid include traditional trick-or-treating, with treats handed out at homes or from cars. Health experts also say people should not attend crowded indoor costume parties or indoor haunted houses, attend hayrides or tractor rides with people who are not from your household, or travel to a rural fall festival.       Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman could be heading into space for their film in October 2021.
