Tri-Parish Works, the workforce development agency serving St. Tammany, St. Bernard, and Plaquemines parishes, is now accepting applicants for the next edition of its free workplace readiness program Back to Work 50+.
The program is geared toward assisting those age 50 or older in getting back into the workforce. The AARP Foundation has awarded Back to Work 50+ grants to 13 organizations nationwide, and Tri-Parish Works is the only recipient in Louisiana.
Available either in-person or online, the program consists of a 1-hour overview and three 2-hour coaching sessions over a two-week period to build confidence and strategies to compete for in-demand jobs and culminates with an employer networking event that enables participants to meet directly with employers from their targeted business sectors.
The next Back to Work 50+ cohort begins on June 6. Spots are limited, so reserve your seat now by calling AARP Foundation toll free at (855) 850-2525, or by visiting aarpfoundation.org/register. If you have any difficulty registering or for further information, please contact Andrea Gazaway at Tri-Parish Works at (985) 646-3940.
