And happy summer from your friends at The DeBruce Foundation! The past year of quarantine and Zoom meetings has inspired us to continue innovating to expand pathways to economic growth and opportunity.

With everyone coming out of the pandemic and some trying to find their new place in the workforce, we want to make sure people have the knowledge to find a job they are both good at and like doing.

We really wanted to make this information accessible to everyone, so we created a series of online workshops focusing on everything from an Agilities Tour where you learn about The Foundation and our work, to a Resume Workshop, to a Career Explorer Tools Session. We would love to see you!

More than anything, we want you to remember that you bring value to the workplace and can expand your pathways even more by learning about your Agilities and how to use them.

Wishing you a fun-filled summer!

Join us for an Agilities Tour

You’re invited to a 1-hour virtual tour of The Foundation’s career exploration tools and resources! Join us to learn how you can leverage these resources in your work, classroom, or organization:
