WorkSource Montgomery believes older workers provide a vital component of our economy and our workforce. American Job Center staff can assist older workers in their job searches and in identifying other resources to help them.
The Jewish Council for the Aging (JCA) can assist eligible older workers through their older worker programs, and brings these services to the Wheaton Job Center.
JCA operates the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). SCSEP provides paid, on-the-job training for low-income men and women age 55 and older who live in Montgomery County. The organization also runs an annual 50+ Employment Expo, six SeniorTech Computer Training Centers, and The Career Gateway — an intensive job-search training program for computer-savvy job-seekers age “50 or better.”
To find out when staff from JCA are at the Wheaton Job Center, visit the partners page.
JCA can be contacted directly at 301-255-4200.
