Urban Senior Jobs Program

Urban Senior Jobs Program – Serving Broward and Miami-Dade Counties

WHAT IS THE URBAN SENIORS JOB PROGRAM?

The Urban Senior Jobs Program is a Senior Citizen initiative of the National Urban League that is offered locally in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties through the Urban League of Palm Beach County. Our staff works with applicants to hone skills, maintain work-readiness and find appropriate opportunities. The Urban League of Palm Beach County’s workforce development team maintains a pool of qualified workers and ensures that employers can recruit reliable, experienced job seekers. The Urban Senior Jobs Program provides applicants with the access to learn new skills to gain placement at non-profit organizations within Broward or Miami-Dade Counties.
