The Senior Community Service Employment Program (Title V) is a training and employment program for low-income, unemployed individuals, age 55+.
Title V offers older adults a paid, temporary work training experience at non-profit organizations and government offices as well as help finding employment to older adults.
The Program is designed to serve those who want and need to return to work/re-enter the workforce, but need training to prepare.
Sherry Woolley, Title V program coordinator with the Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan, joined the WZZM 13 News at Noon to explain. Watch the full interview in the video above.
Grant funds allow the program to serve: Allegan, Ionia, Kent, Muskegon and Ottawa Counties.
The program currently has a variety of work training experiences available and is actively seeking eligible candidates.
