Free Counseling, Coaching, Networking, Referrals & More.

COUNSELING

Professional Counseling — The BJHSG director is a licensed clinical professional counselor in private practice and who supervises graduate level counseling, pastoral care, and human services students. BJHSG is also a partner of  the Maryland Pro Bono Counseling Project. 

COACHING

Life/Career Coaches — We have assembled a list of experience career counselors, life coaches, and resume writers who volunteer their services to group members. In addition, we can provide you with reasonably priced professionals.

NETWORKING

In Person and Online  — We'll help get you connected via LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Meetup. You don't have to go to another job fair, LinkedIn Local, Freelancers Union, Coaches Corner, Career Confidence, or BENG/FENG/MENG event alone. Just knowing that there is someone else you know in the room is helpful. We'll practice what to do/bring/say at these events.

INFORMATION & REFERRAL

Help with the basics — We know that times can get hard when the rug gets pulled out from underneath you. The BJHSG Green Guide (under construction) will provide information on getting unemployment insurance, healthcare without insurance, EBT (food stamps), energy assistance, housing, social security, money management, dealing with creditors, bankruptcy, avoiding foreclosure, and more. 

OUTREACH AND ADVOCACY

Our Modern Elders — We work to move employers away from the perception of older workers as the "Silver Tsunami" or "Baby Boomers" or even "Perennial Workers." Our 45+ workers are our "Modern Elders", a term coined by Arbnb's Chip Conley. A workforce without these experienced workers is a weaker one, with lowered continuity and expertise.
