Job counseling and guidance for people who want to find a career that matches their interests and abilities
This agency connects people making midlife transitions who are looking for greater meaning in life and work. Some want encore careers that combine income with personal meaning and social impact; others want to volunteer their experience and skills as a way of giving back to the larger community.
Core programs include:
* Circles: facilitated small-group discussions for people making transitions at midlife
* Forums: speakers provide insight into challenges facing midlife or career transitions
* Life Reimagined: classes for exploring next steps in life transitions
Workshops and programs are designed to address specifically the four major questions that accompany transitions at midlife:
* Who am I now?
* What do I want?
* How to I get there?
* How do I sustain it, and give back?
An online resource library provides access to articles and other sources that help people navigate their transitions.
