From workshops back into the workforce

Interested in landing a new job?

Join us for free weekly job skills workshops on topics like:

  • Resume reboot 
  • Leveraging LinkedIn   
  • Generational identity  
  • Digital literacy
  • Career coaching
  • And more! 

Successful participants will have an opportunity to land a paid 150-hour “returnship”—an internship for workers 60 and older looking to make a move back into the workforce—with a local employer.

This is a great opportunity for anyone who has been thinking about reentering the workforce or just wants to explore the world of work and learn something new. You may attend as many workshops as you’d like and there is no commitment to apply for a returnship experience.
