Annabella Lapera, RUP Alumni 2021
“It was a privilege to have participated in a seven-session skills training bootcamp through the Rise Up Project. I needed to know how to re-enter the job market after being with the same company for many years. The Rise Up Bootcamp provided me with guidance and tools, such as how to professionally connect via social media, and how to keep my computer skills up-to-date. The Rise Up project consists of volunteer coaches/mentors who want to help job seekers during these unprecedented times. Rob and Ana are dedicated, motivating coaches. Thank you to the Rise Up Project family!”
