Second Career is a government funded program to help recently laid-off, unemployed workers find a new career in an in-demand industry. Successful applicants to the program may receive up to $28,000 in funding to help pay for expenses, such as tuition, books, and child care, associated with the cost of training.
As part of Second Career, we offer free workshops to help you figure out if this is the right program for you.
