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.
