The Global Co Lab Network is seeking local and global teens and mentors to join our virtual organization that engages teens globally to move action forward on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs. We do this via an annual global video Changemaker challenge and weekly virtual SDG Hubs led by teens working with adult mentors, interns, advisors, and organizations.

Eleven hubs meet weekly to address climate change, gender equality, mental health, plastic pollution, hunger, quality education, wildlife conservation, racial justice, arts for the goals, and Spanish and Turkish speakers for the goals. The hubs give teens education on each goal, professional and leadership skills, and a virtual place to work with like-minded teens from all over the world. We are a global organization based in Arlington. See https://youtu.be/tdqGRbZu8P8 and email here at [email protected]

The Return to Earn initiative was launched in June of this year in an effort to support small businesses find and retain the talent they need while also helping unemployed Virginian’s transition back into the workforce. $500 per new hire for a maximum of 25 employees is provided as an incentive by this program. That means that your business could receive up to $12,500 depending on hiring and staffing needs.

The SkillSource Group, Inc. and Virginia Career Works Northern is working hard to make this program available to the small business community and to make the application, enrollment and reimbursement process as simple as possible. Stand apart from the competition, increase new employee morale, and take part in the Return to Earn Program.

We are thrilled to share the news about return to live performances on November 6 after a season in seclusion and numerous virtual performances. Chamber music is about intimacy of communication with the other musicians but also with the audience. The coming season will entice with many of the beloved classical favorites as well as lesser-known masterpieces.

NCE’s August well attended performance on Arlington’s Summer Series at Lubber Run Amphitheater and its September 14th collaboration with the Bowen McCauley Dance Company enjoyed a full house at Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theater.
