Career Development

We invest in our employees, offering a variety of professional development opportunities and promoting from within whenever possible.

We regularly send employees to conferences, workshops, trainings, events, and classes related to their work and our field, and encourage our staff to share their expertise by presenting at such events as well.

Through the 2Life Communities Training Institute, staff have the opportunity to learn more about issues that impact our residents, and to earn CEUs in workshops that help hone or advance their skills. Recent topics have included CPR, hoarding, LGBTQ+ older adults, and working with chronically homeless older adults. For the convenience of our employees, most Training Institute programs are offered right on one of our campuses.
