Marielena says, she decided to search for a different path — one she hoped would lead to a job at a nonprofit organization. A friend recommended that she connect with AARP for guidance, and that’s how she learned about AARP Foundation’s BACK TO WORK 50+ program through Youth Co-Op, Inc.
Navigating a job search in her 50s was intimidating, but BACK TO WORK 50+ helped Tamara update her digital literacy skills. “I went to all the meetings and learned everything I could,” she says. “The classes are so well designed. They teach you exactly what you need to do, step by step: interviewing, keywords to use for your skills, how to dress, what to include on a résumé.”
