Turnaround Thursday is the development of a movement in Anne Arundel County that will prepare returning citizens and underemployed persons who are seeking to reenter the workforce as leaders — prepared, trained, and eager to begin gainful, living wage employment in opportunities created by ACT. Inspired by the successful Turnaround Tuesday movement in Baltimore, ACT was inspired to create Turnaround Thursday - Anne Arundel County. Because of our established relationships, and by working with County Executive Steuart Pittman, we were granted more than $1MM to initiate Turnaround Thursday - Anne Arundel County. Turnaround Tuesday - Baltimore has had a greater than 70% two-year retention rate for its participants. These individuals are prepared, motivated, and ready to work, thrive, and ultimately, to lead in their places of employment, families, and communities. We will be up and running in Spring 2022.
Co Chairs: Jo Ann Mattson, The Lighthouse and Dominique Scurry, First Christian Community Church and Woodside Gardens Resident's Association
Co-chairs: Karen Neale, St. Philip's Episcopal Church and Doug Smith (First Presbyterian)
