Welcome to Thrive Resource Room, where you will hear about Thrive updates and learn about free and affordable community resources to help your organization! This month we will feature opportunities for job seekers and small business owners/entrepreneurs, as well as an overview of Thrive member benefits and how to get more involved in our cross-sector community.

What to expect during this session:

  • Job seeker resources: Jennifer Cheyer, Program Manager, will speak about NOVAworks, which provides customized services to the job seekers of Silicon Valley through its job centers in Sunnyvale and San Mateo. NOVAworks staff are dedicated to providing job seekers with the necessary tools to enter or re-enter Silicon Valley’s workforce.

  • Entrepreneurship resources: Amanda Anthony, Program Manager, will speak about Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center, which provides classes and workshops on business planning, marketing, financial management, and more, to help small business owners start and grow their businesses. With sites in South San Francisco, East Palo Alto, and Menlo Park, Renaissance also offers access to many capital, networking opportunities, and vendor opportunities.

  • Low-cost medical education: Michelle Barraza, SEIU Organizer, will offer information about Futuro Health, which offers resources to help you ramp up your healthcare career with a tuition-free education. Email  to sign up for a future student orientation and learn more about all tuition-free programs and the referral process to start your journey as a healthcare worker at a low cost.

If you have services or information that you would like to share at our next Thrive Resource Room meeting, please email Keirstan. These sessions occur on a monthly basis. We encourage you to send staff members and volunteers (especially new ones!) to one of our monthly sessions to ensure that they are taking advantage of Thrive's resources and opportunities.

*Zoom information will be sent to registered attendees.
