Our computer classes supply a great opportunity for anyone trying to get ahead of the curve in the digital workplace. We offer courses on Microsoft Office Suite, Word Processing, and more.
Mature Alaskans Seeking Skills Training
The MASST program, federally known as the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), provides training and part-time paid job training positions for low income individuals age 55 and older. The program helps Alaska retain the valuable resources of older workers while enabling older workers to maintain an independent lifestyle and make meaningful contributions to their communities. Mature Alaskans receive assistance with job skills training, job search training, and placement into unsubsidized employment while in the program.
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is the federal program that funds local workforce initiatives and provides a variety of job training services for youth. WIOA modernizes and streamlines the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and emphasizes industry sector partnerships, career pathways, cross-program alignment, coordination, data, and accountability.
We are a nonprofit educational organization established to provide adult education services to Fairbanks and the North Star Borough. At ALPA, we focus our educational resources to aid traditionally underserved populations. We are a member of the Alaska Job Center Network which is a partnership of governmental and nonprofit entities who partner services and leverage resources to better meet the employment needs of Alaskan communities.
