Coffee & Career Circles of Maplewood & South Orange (& Greater Essex County)

0
0
Location: Village Trattoria
21 S Orange Ave
When: Weekly on Wednesdays
Time: 10:00am–11:15am

If you're a stay-at-home mom or dad who's considering returning to work, but feel confused, alone and overwhelmed by the process, Coffee & Career Circles: Babies to Briefcases Group, are perfect for you!

Coffee & Career Circles are small facilitated groups of four (4) to six (6) adults who will meet to discuss topics and gain support and insight related to their journey from staying home to returning to work (other groups exist for career changers, those considering leaving the workforce and recent college grads – please call for more information). Typically, group members possess, at minimum, a bachelor's degree.

The process of returning to work can be overwhelming, especially for those who aren't sure about what they want to do; for those who do know, but don't know how to get there;  or for who have been out of the workforce for a long period and feel 'out of the loop'. Experienced facilitators will take group members through a self-assessment process, discover how to work through barriers, unlock ideas, and begin a process to finding a career that is in alignment with their talents, interests and personal life.

Details                                                     

Groups will meet at local coffee shops for five (5) sessions, twice monthly, from 10:00 am to 11:15 am on Wednesday mornings. The first circle will begin Wednesday, September 22nd through Wednesday, October 20th. Group location will be given once you are registered and will vary. 

We are offering a recession rate of $30.00/group session. We strongly encourage you to attend all five (5) sessions to maintain group cohesion and get the most out of it for yourself. Aren't you worth the investment?                          

Interested?          Contact Ms. Andrea Garrido at 917.273.3864 or Ms. Jennifer Rodgers at 201.618.9014, or email: TurningLeafCareerConsulting@gmail.com

The Dance Theater of Harlem Ensemble is a professional troupe of sixteen young dancers trained at the Dance Theater of Harlem.

The Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble embarks on its 2010–2011 national tour, offering diverse audiences their unique yet classic brand of dance.

The ensemble's presentation will center on the art of ballet, but will include a variety of dance forms.  Acclaimed for revolutionizing the non-minority casting of ballet, Dance Theater of Harlem also brought this classic art form to the inner cities sparking the dreams of underprivileged communities through the United States.  The beautiful dancing and exquisite grace of this group of talented young dancers will captivate audiences. Through the Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble, all members of the audience, regardless of familiarity with dancing, will gain new knowledge and appreciate for the art of dance.
