Unemployment Transition Program for COVID-19 Job Loss

Mass layoffs immediately increase suicide risks according to the US Department of Veteran Affairs. In the United States, the unemployed have been receiving an extra $600 a week in benefits during the pandemic, but that is scheduled to end on July 25th. By December many will not have any unemployment benefits at all. What happens then? 




Because I said I would is building a program to help the unemployed build emotional resilience and develop leadership skills as they search for a new job. This certificate program will include:

  • Leadership workshop series on social and emotional learning
  • Accountability support groups that meet regularly
  • A capstone promise project focused on helping families affected by COVID-19

The goal of our Unemployment Transition Program for COVID-19 Job Loss is to improve mental health outcomes in individuals who are unemployed due to the economic effects of COVID-19 by providing leadership training that:

  1. Increases the likelihood of life-stabilizing employment
  2. Provides a sense of purpose through volunteerism that supports families of individuals who have died of COVID-19
