• New YWCA Work Programs

    November 17, 2020

    Your YWCA Marin understands the challenges older adults face when rejoining the workforce or jump-starting a new career. It can be daunting, especially considering how fast technology changes.

    That’s why we’re launching three new free work programs to help get you back into the job market with the confidence, skills, guidance, and support you need to be successful.
