Putting Experience Back to Work with the Wisconsin Senior Employment Program

February 08, 2019

Part-time employment and training for unemployed people age 55 and older.

Tough economic times make it challenging for older workers to find jobs. The Wisconsin Senior Employment (WISE) program in Waukesha County can help. An SCSEP Title V program, WISE assists unemployed people age 55 and older at a modest income level by helping them obtain the training and experience needed to get a job in their community.

“We hope that people who want to re-tool and re-enter the workforce will give WISE a call” says Darice Hannon, Title V WISE Coordinator. “We’re eager to help individuals prepare for today’s jobs.”

The program is operated by the Greater Wisconsin Agency on Aging Resources (GWAAR) the program in several locations around the state. Please contact WISE for information and eligibility guidelines at 262-785-2579, 920-469-8858 or email: darice.hannon@gwaar.org. Learn more at www.gwaar.org/WISE
