ESC Discovery Programs

Programs, ideas and resources

ESC Discovery programs give people the knowledge and confidence to successfully navigate the questions and challenges that often emerge at mid-life and at other times of transition. We customize our services to embrace the goals of our sponsoring partners and personalize our offerings to focus on the people we serve – whether it’s achieving life balance, seeking clarity of purpose, contributing through community engagement, or finding paid or unpaid work with a social purpose.
