Finding employment is one of the biggest challenges faced by many older adults, and JCA helps jobseekers in several ways.
We host annual 50+ Employment Expos in Maryland and Virginia that connect thousands of jobseekers with local employers who value what older workers can offer, and our innovative Career Gateway workshop helps professionals hone their job-search skills so they can land a job.
JCA also manages the Senior Community Service Employment Program for Montgomery and Frederick Counties, and we are the older worker expert for WorkSource Montgomery. Keep reading to learn more about these programs.
