Asheville 50+ Works

The Experienced Workforce Initiative (EWI) was developed in 2017 by a working group of community partners to reach out to adults 50 and above in Western North Carolina, and particularly in the Asheville metro area. 

EWI supports and promotes the engagement of adults aged 50 and above in both the volunteer and workforce continuum, from volunteer work to stipend-based training, part-time and full-time employment, and entrepreneurship in Asheville and Western North Carolina.

In 2021 the Experienced Workforce Initiative has grown to include the Digital Literacy Network to provide technology navigators of those under the digital divide.
