Wisconsin Senior Employment Program (WISE)
The Wisconsin Senior Employment Program (WISE) helps people 55 and older learn new skills by placing them in training positions. Workers are paid minimum wage and income limits do apply. However, the goal is to help them gain regular, unsubsidized employment. The program serves a wide variety of people from all walks of life. Training is provided by host agencies that are either non-profit or governmental and they supervise the progress and abilities of each participant.
