(Toledo News Now Editorial) - If
you are age 50 or older and you are out of work, here is some good news: Owens
Community College has a new opportunity called the Plus 50 Program.
Owens is just one of 11
colleges in the country to receive a grant to develop and promote a program
like this. It will focus on non-credit training courses in healthcare,
education and social service.
Participants who complete the
10-week course receive a certificate. This certificate may well improve
the odds of getting a job or getting accepted into a more advanced program which
earns a 2- or 4-year degree.
Either way, if you're over 50,
out-of-work, or feel as if you are under-employed, and looking for help, the
Owens Plus 50 Program is worth a phone call. Call 567-661-7357 and tell
the operator you want to know more about the Plus 50 job ready program.
