Lone Star College System (LSCS) was recently chosen to join the Plus 50 Encore Completion Program, a national effort to train 10,000 baby boomers for new jobs in healthcare, education, and social services. The program is sponsored by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC).

The college will assist adults age 50 and over in completing degrees or certificates in high-demand occupations that give back to the community. With many adults age 50 and over out of work or seeking to transition to a new career, the program offers skill updates and career makeovers for baby boomers.

Lone Star College System will prepare older adults for careers as a substitute teacher.  This program encompasses teaching strategies, classroom management techniques, experience with lesson plans and guidelines for decision making.  After completing this program, 50-plus students will be prepared to confidently walk into a classroom as a substitute teacher and/or a teacher aide.
