The OPT program relies on donations especially with the cuts in federal funding to provide instruction to students who are out of work or looking for new opportunities in accounting, insurance and general office support. All the PWI fashion show proceeds go directly to the OPT program.

PWI is changing lives in our community by helping OPT students stay and finish their program to make a better lives for themselves and their families.

"Thank you" to our sponsors GS Levine Insurance Services, AFCO Premium Finance, San Diego Insurance Staffing and SCIF for giving us the financial backing to have this event to give the students at OPT.

What else! Well I-Day of course! Please come visit our booth on June 1st at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center in Hotel Circle. We look forward to seeing you and sharing with you about PWI.
