86 p. 

By the end of 2005, the oldest baby boomers will begin turning 60. Although baby boomers have generally done better than any previous generation in terms of income and education, not all baby boomers have been successful. As baby boomers age, the total economically disadvantaged population will increase. Consequently, over the next decade, the population of individuals eligible for Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) programs will also increase and age. Because individuals are not only living longer but also remaining healthy enough to continue working longer than ever before, and because of the new emphasis on computer and communication technology and "soft skills" in the postindustrial age, those older adults with up-to-date skills will have new opportunities for continuing work later in life. The JTPA system should begin preparing for the aging of its participants and for possibly expanding program services to accommodate growing need. The JTPA system should reexamine its current service delivery approaches to ensure that its strategies are appropriate for older workers. (Seventeen tables/figures are included. Contains 27 references. Appended are a graph and table detailing U.S. population increases and ages in 1965-2015 and estimating the labor force activity of mature and older workers.) (MN)
