The Older Worker Employment Program (OWEP) provides training opportunities to homeless older adults with the goal of having them return to (or enter for the first time) the competitive job market, through experience and training at non-profit and/or government partner agencies.
The non-profit organizations provide training that assists seniors in attaining the confidence and skills necessary to transition into unsubsidized employment.
OWEP has partnered with WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) to maximize a wide array of services to job seekers and employers.
Participants train for 20 hours per week while earning a stipend in a supportive environmant at a community service organization near their neighborhood.
Community Service Organizations are partner agencies, providing trainig and work experience to prepare participants for employment in the variety of industries that make-up the diverse economic base of Los Angeles.
