Path Forward is a nonprofit organization on a mission to empower people to restart their careers after time spent focused on caregiving. We fulfill this mission by working with companies to create and run mid-career internships — also known as “returnships” — that give professionals a jump start back to their careers, while giving companies access to a diverse, untapped talent force.

Since 2016, we’ve worked with more than 90 companies to create return to work programs, including Amazon, Walmart, Netflix, Apple, SAP, NBCUniversal, Verizon, PayPal, Intuit, and others.  Roughly 80% of the participants in these programs have been hired by the companies where they completed their returnships.
