Turnaround Tuesday And The Path To A Job

Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development

In five years the non-profit Turnaround Tuesday, which focuses on workforce development, has helped more than 800 Baltimore residents find work. It calls itself “a second-chance jobs movement.”

Director of operations Bri Johnson says success comes partly because people choose to participate. We hear about the new WYPR podcast that goes behind the scenes: “Higher Purpose,” created by Yasmene Mumby. And Darlene Lee talks about completing Turnaround Tuesday’s program and finding a career path that’s helped her reach her goals.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is Senior Supervising Producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
