We are the Community Initiatives Program within the Human Services Department of the City of Phoenix. We have an Employment Initiative program where we team with 14 different governmental and non-governmental non-profits to provide supportive services to the unemployed. We are planning a workshop for a particularly vulnerable group, those unemployed individuals who are over 50. This age group will total 40% of the workforce by 2014 and will grow even more beyond that. This is a particularly important time for them to get good employment due to health issues and need for independant income in the aging process. We will have 6 different workshops rotating all day long to help best equip this group for their job search and will help them to get connected to social media sites for employment, build a resume and will also offer a job fair the following day.
