What is WISE
The WISE Program provides older adults, age 55 and older, with training and part-time, paid work experience in community service organizations. The on-the-job experience helps to develop and improve skills necessary for permanent employment.
Each participant receives individual job counseling and a comprehensive assessment from a specialist. Together, the job seeker and specialist prepare an individual employment plan to be used as a guide for finding appropriate job opportunities.
The Wisconsin Senior Employment (WISE) Program is the state-administered Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), authorized by Title V of the Older Americans Act, federally funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.
