Program Description


“Professions have been redefined. The good ol’ skills that would land you the job before don’t work anymore. AARP Foundation does a great job helping you find the skills you need to move forward.”

“BACK TO WORK 50+ is targeting 50+ workers who were previously employed in working class and moderate income jobs and whose educational attainment and lack of computer skills present barriers to employment in jobs that lead to better economic security.”
-aarp.org

“…many people in their 50s feel invisible as they navigate a job market where age discrimination still looms large. A 2018 AARP study found that, of 3,900 adults (age 45 and up) polled, 61% had experienced or seen age discrimination at work.”
