To help combat soaring unemployment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Baltimore Job Hunters Support Group (BJHSG) is seeking unemployed workers from the Greater Baltimore area for a new intensive incubator program titled TEAMWORKS (TMWKS). This 12-week virtual program will start on Monday, June 1, 2020. BJHSG is currently recruiting for the first TMWKS cohort of 25 participants. The primary goal of the program is to prevent laid-off workers from becoming long term unemployed by quickly equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to make the best decisions about their lives and career paths. The program is free of charge to participants. BJHSG will launch the second session of the TMWKS program on August 24th to serve a total of 50 adult participants who have lost their jobs due to the COVID pandemic or other layoffs within the last 6 months. The TMWKS curriculum challenges participants to ReCharge, ReDesign, and ReBuild. The "Three Re’s" material is presented simultaneously throughout the 3-day (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday), 18 hours per week program in a 100% virtual format. Each participant will be expected to complete class and homework assignments and meet with a career coach and a counselor weekly. In addition, participants will complete entrepreneurial training, a LinkedIn Bootcamp, a unique visioning workshop, and sessions on creativity, mindfulness, and maintaining good mental health. We need curriculum writers and teachers with lesson planning expertise to help us turn our eclectic selection of textbooks into lesson plans using a specified BJHSG format. Writers will be provided with a copy of the book, which they may keep, and will be credited for their work. Books that we would like to have converted into lessons plans: 55, Unemployed and Faking Normal, Elizabeth White Forgive for Good, Fred Luskin Getting Unstuck, Timothy Butler A Mind at Home with Itself, Byron Katie Crucial Conversations, Patterson, McMillian and Switzler Power Moves, Lauren McGoodwin The New Rules of Work, Cavoulacos and Minshew
To enrich our community by providing a facility for worship, arts, education, recreation, and celebration for personal and collective growth.
You might know the building as your polling place or as your Girl Scout cookie- sorting place. Perhaps you are already a participant in one of the many organizations that use the space, such as the Baltimore Musicales or Children’s Village.
The Corner Community Center (CCC) wants to enhance and expand the use of this building and grounds at 5802 Roland Avenue. in order to enrich your opportunities to network with your neighbors, to learn about environmental changes you can make to your homes and yards to lessen run-off to the Chesapeake Bay, to offer speakers and programs that deal with concerns you have about our city, and to offer spaces for meetings or programs that you want to offer to the neighborhood - just to get started with the possibilities!
The Baltimore Job Hunters Support Group (BJHSG) is one of the 24 groups that meets at CCC. BJHSG, a volunteer-led group that provides emotional and spiritual support to the unemployed, is expanding to include a formal program of coaching, advocacy, counseling, mutual mentoring, volunteering,and connection to resources, for all persons seeking employment search assistance, with emphasis on long-term unemployed workers (defined as those who have been seeking employment for 6 months or more without success) affected by the Great Recession and those who are age 45-50+ workers. We have a variety of dynamic volunteer positions that will support our program expansion efforts.
