    WEEKLY MEETINGS.....

    ACCOUNTABILITY GROUPS

    Our weekly Accountability Groups provide an opportunity for small groups of people to meet and get practical in applying techniques, keeping momentum, and helping each other along in the journey to re-employment. Our experience is that those who regularly attend an Accountability Group, find jobs more quickly than those who don't.

    Try out a group! These help put "hands and feet" to the disciplines and techniques that P2E teaches and encourages.
