The Plus 50 Initiative
 is a project to benchmark and showcase the most current and innovative programs at community colleges that engage the plus 50 learner. Organized by the American Association of Community Colleges, the Plus 50 Initiative empowers community colleges to create or expand campus programs that engage the plus 50 student population in learning; training or re-training programs; and volunteer, civic, or service activities. The initiative's early seed funding was provided by The Atlantic Philanthropies.

 

The fastest growing segment of the labor market is the age 50 and older worker.  This program offers courses designed for those who are 50 years of age and older who want to or are being required to return to work or even change careers. 

 

Classes include Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, QuickBooks, Keyboarding as well as Internet and computer basics. We also offer courses in job hunting, transitioning to a new career and financial management. Check the schedules on the left side of this page for detailed information.

 

Shoreline Community College also offers continuing education through online course offerings with our partner ed2go
