 AACC Kicks Off Next Stage of Plus 50 Initiative 

8/15/2012

Eleven colleges are set to join a national program designed to train 10,000 baby boomers over the next three years for new jobs in healthcare, education and social service.

The goal of the Plus 50 Encore Completion Program—offered by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) in cooperation with its member colleges—is to partner with 100 colleges in offering special training programs to help students age 50 and older earn certificates or degrees in the growing fields of healthcare, education or social services. The program is funded through a $3.2-million grant from the Deerbrook Charitable Trust to AACC.
