In five years the non-profit Turnaround Tuesday, which focuses on workforce development, has helped more than 800 Baltimore residents find work. It calls itself “a second-chance jobs movement.”
Director of operations Bri Johnson says success comes partly because people choose to participate. We hear about the new WYPR podcast that goes behind the scenes: “Higher Purpose,” created by Yasmene Mumby. And Darlene Lee talks about completing Turnaround Tuesday’s program and finding a career path that’s helped her reach her goals.
