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 midcareer internships — sometimes called “returnships” — to give women (and men) a jump start back to the paid workforce. We’ve worked with more than 40 companies, including Walmart, Intuit, Apple, NBCUniversal, PayPal, Verizon, Stripe, LendingClub and others. 82% of the participants in our programs were hired by the companies where they interned. More information about our program can be found here.

We help companies recruit candidates for returnship companies. For returning candidates we offer information about applications, including career restart seminars, and access to job listings.
Anyone who has taken a career break of two years or more for caregiving.
Types of flexible work
We work with employers to create 16-week returnship programs for professional restarting their careers after caregiving. Flexibility options vary by employer.
We work with a lot of technology companies who recruit for returnships in technology positions but also corporate positions. We are working to expand our program to other industries.
