As adults age, they run the risk of losing a job due to illness or accident; however, these individuals, upon recovery, often desire to return to the workforce. The Federation Employment and Guidance Service (FEGS) offers carefully monitored vocational training to adults over the age of 54 in order to prepare and place these adults in appropriate work. FEGS also serves as a screening process for individuals who require personal adjustment training or services that cannot be offered by the program. Graduates of the program have a high rate of job placement, and this model of vocational rehabilitation has been mimicked by programs across the country.
