Program Details

This exciting new program connects Connecticut’s talented older job seekers with access to virtual job skills training programs and job development services. More detail about this program is below. This program is available to residents of Waterbury, Danbury and Torrington areas. 

The Connecticut Older Worker Virtual Job Training Program is designed to provide low-income people who are age 55+ with access to job skills training virtually. By providing them with laptops and internet hot spots, this program connects people who live in rural areas or are caring for family members and cannot get to job training sites in person. Participants are also paired with a training consultant to enroll in online courses, update their skills. Then, they are connected with a job developer to help find and secure employment.

Older adults who are age 55+, low-income, unemployed, unable to access in-person job training classes (lack of transportation or technology, etc.), and must have basic computer skills. Individuals living in New Haven County are eligible for participation. Candidates must have a desire to train and learn! Program slots are limited, so not everyone who qualifies will be able to enroll.

Eligibility Requirements

  • 55 years or older
  • Low-income
  • Unemployed
