Published Monday, July 31, 2017

Cornerstone Alliance is pleased to announce that it will soon be offering Work for [email protected]+ workshops in our community.

AARP Foundation’s Work for [email protected]+ will help low- and moderate-income adults age 50+ gain the knowledge, support, and resources they need to make informed decisions and take the right first steps toward successful self-employment. The 90-minute workshop will walk participants through the Work for [email protected]+ materials and connect them with local resources to help them reach their goals.
 
There will be four workshops offered:
 
August 29, 2017 from 9:00 am-11:00 am at Area Agency on Aging, 2900 Lakeview Avenue, 2 Conference Room, St. Joseph, MI. 
 
September 21, 2017 from 1:00 pm-3:00 pm at Cass County Council on Aging- Front Crossing, 227 S. Front Street, Dowagiac, MI.
 
October 11, 2017 from 9:00 am-11:00 am at Van Buren Conference Center, 490 S. Paw Paw Street, Lawrence, MI 49064 
 
November 7, 2017 from 1:00 pm-3:00 pm at Area Agency on Aging, 2900 Lakeview Avenue, 2 Conference Room, St. Joseph, MI. 
 
The decision to start a business can be both exciting and daunting. Work for [email protected]+ breaks the choices down for older adults in an approachable way through five steps:
 
• A careful consideration of the potential and perils of working for yourself
• Exercises to help develop the self-employment idea
• A realistic overview of what it takes to pursue a self-employment opportunity
• Guidance to help avoid pitfalls and scams
• Ways to find trustworthy support and services
