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.

Additional Information

Wisconsin residents who are 55 and older, unemployed, and living on a limited income may qualify. For additional information, call 608-789-5645 or 800-742-5627, or complete the Request Services portion of our website.
