2019 BoomerWorks Bootcamp

Ultimate Basic Training for professionals 50+ wanting to expand their income through self-employment

If you’re 50+ and exasperated with your job search, it’s time to consider supplementing or replacing your traditional W-2 job with meaningful self-employment. 


Becoming an independent  freelancer or small business owner IS possible…with the right tools.


So, where do you begin?


Join other self-employment seekers for our 9-week, hands-on FREE 2019 BootCamp (a $1,500 value) to help shift your mindset and skillset towards building an actionable business plan that can generate new income opportunities. While targeted toward age 50+ professionals, the program is not age-restricted.  


Business experts will lead highly interactive, practical Instructional Sessions, which will be followed-up by facilitated Discussion Group meetings to help you absorb material from the prior session. You’ll be provided with additional resources (links, videos, worksheets) after each Session. 


The BootCamp runs from April 11, 2019 through June 3, 2019. All sessions will be held at Grace Community Ballston Office, 1031 N Vermont Street, Arlington, VA - just 3 blocks from the Ballston Metro. Each session will run from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM.


Session 1 begins Thursday, April 11 followed by a Discussion Group on Monday, April 15th. This format will repeat itself each week through early June. Topics and Dates are listed below.

Registration Opening Soon!

Why is the BootCamp FREE (a $1,500 value)? And should I donate?


We believe that all 50+ professionals should have free access to our services, as many in our community face financial constraints. For those able to contribute monetarily, we strongly encourage you to donate an amount that fits your budget and aligns with the value you will receive. Your contribution will be a financial and emotional investment in your self-employment journey.


To invest in your success, you can donate here.
