The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development would like “mature” workers to know that slots are available in the Workforce 55+ Program.

Workforce 55+ is a job-based training program for individuals 55 years of age or older who would like to get back into the workforce, learn new job skills or refresh old skills and who are income eligible.

Those who qualify will get a stipend of $7.25 an hour for a maximum of 20 hours per week while they are getting job training at a nonprofit worksite.

In Morris County, additional information may be obtained by contacting Barbara J. Kriest, Employment Resource Specialist at the Morris County One-Stop Career Center located at 107 Bassett Avenue in Dover. She may be reached at 973-361-9050 or at [email protected]
