Virtual
Wednesday, December 12, 2018

12:30 PM ~ 4:30 PM ET

The Employment and Training Administration is pleased to host Bridging Workforce and Aging: A Coordinated and Collaborative Partnership.  This virtual conference is in support of Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) grantees and stakeholders’ efforts to improve services and outcomes for older workers with multiple barriers to employment.  We will have several sessions from noon to 5pm Eastern Standard Time, throughout a 3-day period.

Description

The virtual conference is focused on building stronger partnerships and implementing effective engagement strategies within our service-delivery network as well as strengthening the management of key grant activities.

Wednesday, December 12, begins with learning about the challenges and successes of Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) integration.  Next, we venture into business engagement. Learn about strategies and innovative approaches on how business development at American Job Centers (AJCs) can help grantees increase opportunities for SCSEP job seekers and hear from private employers on how older workers contribute to their workforce. You will also learn about effective strategies for creating employment opportunities for your participants. In closing, you will have an opportunity to share your thoughts and questions about the first 2 days’ workshops.
