The Older Kansan Employment Program (OKEP) is a service of The SouthWest Kansas Area Agency on Aging (SWKAAA) which is funded through the Kansas Deptartment of Commerce to assist Kansas workers 55 and older with resume building, job searching, on-line application assistance, job club support, interviewing skills and much more.


Aligning qualified workers with employers who are looking for stable workers is the ultimate goal of this program.


Preparing now is the key for when the employment cycle begins to open again.


While we are closed to the public, we are still open for business.


Contact Sherry Martinez at 620-225-8230 or sherry.martinez@swksaging.org to make a telephone appointment and begin the process to finding your next employee or your next career.


Soon, we are planning the regular schedule of being at the Garden City Employment Office on Tuesdays and every first and third Thursday and Great Bend Employment Office every second and fourth Thursday.
