Addressing a Great Need

An Economic Imperative

Our nation’s economy is dependent on how we train, engage, and retain older workers as employees. Unfortunately, there are few programs preparing older Americans for the jobs of the future. The growing labor shortage continues to accelerate while an experienced, talented pool of workers remain on the sidelines.

SSAI bridges the gap by training older Americans in essential skills rather than merely providing job search assistance. We engage with employers and local partners to unleash the potential of older workers, especially the underserved groups of low-income women, our nation’s proud veterans, and returning citizens.
