Mature Worker Services
As a mature worker, trying to get back into the workforce or change careers can be difficult. There are several opportunities and services dedicated to helping mature workers get the assistance and information they need, including our Workforce 55+ program.
Workforce 55+ is a federally-funded program committed to empowering economically disadvantaged seniors to achieve economic independence and control of their futures.
The aim of Workforce 55+ is to help mature workers return to the workforce through an "earn while you learn" program. The program partners with community-based, nonprofit organizations and government agencies to provide participants with training to update their skills. Program participants receive counseling, assessments, and training to obtain employment.
