Former recruiters, vocational workers, workforce development specialists, Human Resource professionals, and career coaches encouraged to apply.

We are searching for caring, detail oriented professionals to provide weekly virtual peer to peer wellness support for newly unemployed individuals due to COVID. Volunteers provide structure in resume and cover letter building, networking, and strategic job searching. Our volunteers ensure each participant makes notable progress towards employment. Together clients and volunteers build rapport and a trusting relationship to alleviate the effects of isolation and unemployment.

The combination of collaborative planning and connection with clients creates an innovative approach to addressing unemployment. The ESN increases community equity through expanding social capital and opportunities. This program provides clients the opportunity to upskill through a workforce development program and work with coaches to regain stable employment, as well as the opportunity to be referred to clinical care.
