Workforce Development

At Back on My Feet, our workforce development partners provide our members with the necessary trainings and certifications to build skill sets and open up new opportunities in the job market.

Soft Skills

Accenture Skills to Succeed is a custom workforce development program designed to meet our members where they are, building on essential skills to help them in their future careers. Partnering with local Accenture volunteers, our chapters use blended learning style classrooms to build workforce skills in the areas like interview skills, job searching and online identities, internet basics, email training and Microsoft Office.

Cigna Health and Wellness Program is a partnership between Cigna and Back on My Feet and exists to deepen the impact of our Next Steps programming for our members. Embedding Cigna’s health and wellness curriculum into Next Steps allows us to offer workshops on topics like weight management, nutrition, optimizing health, and much more. Additionally, Cigna offers support for members to call in, 24/7, to get answers to health-related questions and get connected to relevant local resources.
