Group Discovery Workshops


This training will provide an overview of how to implement Group Discovery for an array of populations.  Guided Group Discovery is a strategy that assembles small groups of up to 10 job seekers committed to an employment search. Led by one or more trained facilitators, job seekers are guided through a process of self-exploration and offered an opportunity for peer support that is often very beneficial to job seekers, especially people who may be struggling to find
employment and may otherwise lose motivation to stick with the job search over time. As with a more traditional job club model, Group Discovery provides the added benefit of networking and feeling less alone in the job search process. Join this day long training for strategies and resources to improve your programs.
