Opportunity, and Obligation, to Volunteer

Forty Plus is a true non-profit, supported solely from donations, member fees and, importantly, the volunteer services of our members. Fees and donations go to pay rent, utilities and other operating expenses. However, our operating costs are kept low because our members volunteer their time in assisting others on the way back onto a corporate payroll.

In-depth Orientation: Free.

Our orientation sessions show how we help you get back to work through the Forty Plus program — based on over 70 years of experience and success.
