Enterprising Careers

Enterprising Careers is a career exploration program that can help you prepare for and find rewarding employment opportunities. We help you take the first steps to become “job ready”  by showing how to access your current skills, make informed decisions about career paths, and perhaps considering going back to school. We offer individual support alongside group sessions where you can explore your inner self and feel empowered to make life and career decisions. Learn from other women just like you, and about community resources that are available to support you along your journey.

Please call or email us today to find out more or to register for an upcoming session.
