NetWork 2 NewWork is a community service of EaRN, Employment and Resource Network, the pioneering community service to empower churches and non-profit organizations as they reach out to assistance those are unhappily employed, or in transition who are unemployed, underemployed, or making a career change.

NetWork 2 NewWork events occur annually every other odd-numbered month (January, March, May, July, September, and November).  These events have taken place on that rotation since July 2012.

The NW2NW Committee is made up entirely of volunteers who know the value of networking as a lifestyle, not just a job search activity, from repeated personal experience.
