The weekly sessions are held most Sundays at 6 pm at the Ethical Culture Society of Bergen County’s meetinghouse at 687 Larch Avenue, Teaneck, NJ.

  1. Hi Anne,
    As you know I am seeking employment. I think a group like this could be helpful for me.

  2. Hi Anne
    I am a counselling Psychologist in Somerset West South Africa exploring the potential of job clubs (for lack of a better word) to both serve as an alternative source of belonging ,structure and meaning as well as a source of income through projects and tendered collective jobs.This is mainly aimed at the so called NEET’s (Not In Education ,Employment or training) between the ages of 16 and 24 now touching the 4 million mark here in South Africa.The idea is for private sector companies to sponsor and provide skills training to members whilst they also go through a programme of career education to facilitate their transition into a new world of work (as officially declared by the WEF last year),learning amongst other things to start and run their own permanent job club as a reliable structure in their communities. Any ideas as to the viability of such a project and what you would include in such a career education programme?
