The Seniors' Resource Center Job Training Program is looking for older adults who want to learn new skills and rejoin the workforce. Participants learn valuable skills demanded in today's workplace. Customer service, resume writing, interviewing, job search techniques, or computer and clerical skills may be part of the provided training. There is no fee for this service.
Each participant then provides service, up to 20 hours each week at $7.24 per hour, at either a not-for-profit or government agency. Skills and talents are matched with a host agency that can utilize a participant's abilities and help him or her to learn new skills and polish old talents.
A partnership between SRC and the Colorado Department of Human Services' Division of Aging and Adult Services, the Job Training Program assists individuals in rebuilding self-confidence while developing marketable skills. It serves individuals age 55 and better who have an annual income of not more than $13,538 if single and $18,213 if in a two-person household. It is available to residents of the following counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Elbert and Jefferson.
