Expand your knowledge with Lunch and Learn 2019

Local News l

Our 7th Annual Lunch and Learn programs will be held at the end of January and March this year. We are holding these programs at venues which can hold around 30 folks…since interest and enrollment has increased through the years.

This season Sarasota-Manatee Section NCJW will learn how two not- for- profit local agencies are empowering local residents and families to make life style changes which will afford exciting life changing experiences.

Our first Lunch and Learn is at noon Jan. 30, 2019 at Glasser/ Schoenbaum Human Services Center in the Loevner Conference Room.

Our topic is Turning Former Florida Convicts Lives around through Project 180.
This program is relevant to our section since NCJW supports efforts to reinstitute the vote and increase civil rights for former felons.

Our speaker, Judy Rosemarin, holds a MS in counseling and MSW in social Work. She also holds a BS in Journalism. Judy is the co-author of “Becoming an Exceptional Executive Coach” and is a dynamic and inspiring presenter. Judy has been on TV and radio and was the original New York Post’s weekly “Careers Plus” columnist.

Judy presently runs a support group for the men and women enrolled in project 180. We will learn just how important the support group network is for former convicts who wish to successfully reintegrate into society and what members of the community can do to offer support.

Project 180 offers a residential program with a focus on clean and sober housing, job training, interview practice and social support for men and women trying to reintegrate back into society. Project 180 offers hope, compassion, and skill sets with the goal of successful re-entry into society.
