We've done grant writing, a tour of the local library given by librarians, a reentry simulator, a debrief from their In Service Training and tours of 5 local nonprofits. In February, we are going to a Federal Resume Workshop hosted by the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

I also have a feedback survey on Google Forms for our cohort to complete after the meetings and one prompt asks for future meeting ideas. I ususally get half participation but I give them all the opportunity to mold the program.
