New Choices Career Development Program is a free service of Delaware County Community College designed to help single parents, displaced homemakers and individuals going through life transitions (including those experiencing layoffs and furloughs). In light of Covid-19 developments and following safety protocols put in place by the college, all services will be offered in an online format through Fall 2020. 

Join an engaging online program that is part class, part support group to aid you in achieving your short and long-term career goals. Learn more about interview skills, labor market trends, networking, and more while having conversations with others in your situation and receiving 1:1 check in calls with a counselor to formulate a plan for your future. By the completion of the program, participants leave with an updated resume, a clearer idea of their career and educational options, and a plan to see them through with confidence. One on one coaching/short term services may also be available on a case by case basis.
