FIFTY+ is a new program specifically designed to help women age 50 and older enter or re-enter the workforce. Research shows that older women face special challenges in their job search.  But we also know that age plus experience equals success!

The program is offered monthly to cohorts of 10-15 women who meet twice per week for two weeks. Through a targeted mix of intensive coaching and training, participants will:

  • identify areas of career interest
  • update their resumes
  • practice interviewing skills
  • learn or improve computer skills; and,
  • develop a plan for finding work and establishing careers.

A new cohort begins every month at our various Southside and West Side locations. Please call Sheree Gilmore at (773) 366-0711 for details.
