Peer Careers

Peer work is a fulfilling way to turn lived experience into social impact.
We’re here to help with challenges in certifications, placements, and on-the-job-difficulties.

We are:

  • Connecting peers to the training resources they need for certifications and job placements.
  • Helping peers overcome challenges and create impact in their roles.
  • Helping current and potential employers to understand the value of peers on their workforce.
